The London Gazette has been professionally indexed since the early nineteenth century.
This site provides two access options:
- Browse the indexes page by page - identify the year and volume, use the contents page to locate the section (for example Honours or Army Appointments) and trace the subject alphabetically by surname or relevant title.
- If you have a fast connection you may download the entire file which can be keyword searched - note though that many of these files are very large.
Each index entry is associated with a page number. This is unique within the year and in the Advanced Search combine it with a date range of no more than one year to go straight to the information you require.
A consolidated index covers 1836-1840. This includes only non personal information. If you have individual access to these years or prior to 1829 we would be pleased to hear from you.
