Search by certificate number or by name followed by nat* in our catalogue, using the box below, for naturalisation certificates (HO 334) and naturalisation certificate index entries (HO 409). The documents are subject to 100 year closure (although you can requested access with a Freedom of Information request) and only about 40% of applications in this series have survived.
From June 1969 the index is the only source of detail for foreign nationals who naturalised in the UK as the Home Office did not keep a set of duplicate certificates during this period. Files may also contain later correspondence, mostly until the mid-1960s but some as late as 1996.
I have also had the opportunity to complete work experience at King’s College Hospital, which was great.
