We put many hours of innocent fun into compiling Londoners of Note, here. But we are acutely aware at this early stage that there are bound to be some howling omissions. Have we missed out your favourite Londoner? Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The loose rules are as follows: 1. The individual in question must be dead. 2 He or she, if not born in London, must have spent a significant part of his life in the city and/or made a notable impact or contribution to its history, e.g. Shakespeare.
