London Gazette

(info below taken directly from london gazette)

Back in 1665, The London Gazette was introduced, originally as a Printed publication containing, all the latest Notices. Just imagine having to read such a thing every week just to keep up!

History of The London Gazette

The Gazette has a long and established history, and has been at the heart of British public life for over 350 years. 

An alternative to scurrilous gossip and rumour

During the 17th century, potentially ‘reckless’ publishing of articles – often just scurrilous rumours issued in pamphlet form – was thought to endanger national security, and this led to a climate in which the printing of any news not pertaining to the coverage of events aboard, natural disasters, official royal declarations and the most sensationalist of crime reporting, was largely prohibited.

As a consequence, the British press was an ill-developed and badly defined industry. The introduction of censorship in 1663, together with the licensing of all news publications, did little to encourage the growth of a healthy press.

However, the situation was to change dramatically in 1665, with the worst outbreak of plague in England since the Black Death of 1348. The Great Plague is thought to have killed 15 per cent of the population in London, and forced King Charles II to remove his court from the capital and relocate – what was effectively the government of the day – to the relative safety of Oxford. It is said that the exiled courtiers were so terrified of the disease that they were unwilling to even touch London newspapers for fear of contagion.

The Oxford Gazette emerged from this turmoil, and when the plague finally dissipated and the court returned to London, The London Gazette was born.

Obviously, as the years have gone by someone invented the Internet and Websites. We all know what that has done, completely changed the way most of us communicate and conduct commerce.

Keeping with the time the London Gazette went online in the early 90s

Albion Gazette

This is a more Modern Online Gazette.

Much simpler to use than the London Gazette and considerably less expensive, The Albion Gazette is not controlled by HM Goverment or its Stationary Office.

It is a Truly Independent place for you to Post Your Notices.

At present Certain Notices MUST be placed on the London Gazette due to UK Acts and Statutes.

Gazette should provide a permanent, official public record of important statutory and non-statutory notices that can be used to support legal and other processes.

It must be searchable in an Open Public Domain – It can not be hidden behind a password on a Website or the likes.

However, the Law requires that all parties must be informed of where you are posting Notice. This can be very easily done by copying the URL of the website page on which you posted your notice and include this in all correspondence.

It is all about ensuring all and any involved party has ample opportunity to respond / rebut any claims being made.
