The London, Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes are the United Kingdom's official Newspapers of Record. Each edition of the Gazette includes notices that must be made public as a statutory requirement before certain legal powers and procedures can be exercised or finalised.
The Gazettes are now initially published online at www.thegazette.co.uk, which includes a searchable database of all notices placed in the Gazettes since 1665. The archive is of great interest to historians, professional and amateur. Highlights include the Great Fire of London, the battles of Waterloo and Trafalgar, the first Victoria Cross, and World Wars I and II.
Printed and PDF copies of the London, Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes are also available for subscription.

British Honours System
Managed by The Cabinet Office, the British Honours system has evolved over 650 years as the country has found alternative means of recognising merit, gallantry and service.
Honours lists are published twice yearly: at New Year and on the date of The Queen's official birthday in June. Anyone can nominate someone for an award. Anyone can receive an award if they reach the required standard of merit or service.
Queen's Awards Supplements
The main United Kingdom, or Prime Minister's list, details the people from all walks of life awarded honours for the New Year 2015. Separate lists are also published for honours awarded in a number of dependencies and overseas territories; 1,251 people are honoured with 69% of recipients being recognised for outstanding work within their communities. ...more
