Great Britain Post Office Numbershttp://www.gbps.org.uk/information/po-numbers/index.php

This resource is provided by the Great Britain Philatelic Society

In the listings here, the offices are listed in numeric order, together with the county, and in the England and Wales list the approximate date that the office was allocated that number (as taken from various Post Office listings). If more than one office is listed (other than sub-offices of the same head office), it means that the number was reallocated. If a range of dates is listed, they represent the first and last official lists in which the allocation of the number to that office appears.
