Welcome to the ELECTIONS IN HARROW web site. It is my hope that it becomes a primary source of electoral data
for the area now administered by the London Borough of Harrow.
The periods covered are:
1894-1933: The Urban Districts of Harrow-on-the-Hill and Wealdstone, the Rural District
of Hendon and the Civil Parishes of Pinner, Harrow Weald, Great Stanmore, Little Stanmore and Edgware.
1934-1953: The Urban District of Harrow.*
1954-1963: The Municipal Borough of Harrow.*
1964-1977: The London Borough of Harrow.
1978-2001: The London Borough of Harrow.
2002-2017: The London Borough of Harrow.
Latest News: Latest news on changes to this site, recent election results and information on
forthcoming elections in Harrow.
The information and data presented on this site have been accumulated as a result of intermittent research over a period of more than 40 years and were occasionally published in the Harrow area in
the form of short print-run booklets. Between publication dates I frequently corrected, revised and added to the contents. Through the medium of the internet I can now make
this information available to a wider audience of historians, researchers and political 'anoraks'.
Within each year group section are summary pages leading to
downloadable files, usually in Adobe pdf format, that give access
to the pages from the original or updated books. It will be noticed that I have relied upon the style of presentation used by the late F.W.S. Craig in his scholarly series of books, British
Parliamentary Election Results. No apologies for that - in my opinion it is the clearest way of setting out consecutive results for the same electoral area.
In addition, a selection of historic images, election addresses and leaflets from my collection can be viewed. These can be downloaded (usually as jpeg files) from additional summary pages. I
would welcome the opportunity of including images from other sources if they are sent to me - either as jpeg files or as originals for me to scan before carefully returning.
Shortly before my 18th birthday in 1975 I joined the Labour Party, remaining a member until spring 2017; it will be realised, therefore, that I am someone with strong political opinions.
Nevertheless, I have always endeavoured to present the information in my books and on this web site dispassionately and without bias.
All the electoral data on the site is held for archiving, historical and research purposes in the public interest as provided
for by the Data Protection Act 1998. Please feel free to use it for any purpose you wish, however I would be grateful if the
source was acknowledged. Corrections, suggestions or observations? Then please send me an e-mail.
