Below is an alphabetical list of 'M' place names. The dates given in the second column show which Division a place was part of at different times.

To establish if the WYAS: Wakefield holds records for the place and the years you are researching click on the link highlighted under the Division and this will take you to a list of available registers. You may find it helpful to note the Polling District included in the fourth column as this will be the district a place will be found under in the registers.
