Sun Fire Insurance Records
« on: Saturday 17 October 15 12:28 BST (UK) »
I have recently been up to the London Metropolitan Archives and located my ancestor in the above records.  I was wondering if anyone has ever looked at the Sun Indorsement  books ref: MS12160 what  information they could contain and if it was worth going up for?

Thanks mowsehowse for the link, however I've already looked at this, I've  bought a book called "Fire Insurance Records" by David T Hawkings and this gives lots of examples for me to look at. Should be a great help.

The LMA has a useful leaflet rack both at the LMA and online, this might help if you don't already have it
