Group    From 1965 

London Borough of Haringey

Created in 1965 by the amalgamation of three former boroughs: Hornsey, Wood Green and Tottenham.

2007 - 10, Haringey Council ran its own historic plaques scheme to commemorate notable or famous local former residents.

Spelling: on creation this council chose the spelling Haringey, but it is not universally adopted by any means, and in the records Harringay is frequently used. We are as confused as anyone.
