This template is used to provide references to pages in the London Gazette online archive website at http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/. The London Gazette is the official newspaper of the British government for England and Wales in which all official notices are published. The template is provided to simplify the entering of addresses. An index by number/date (i.e. if you know the number or date you can find the document) is at WP:London Gazette Index.

The template may also be used to provide references to pages in the online archives of the Edinburgh Gazette and Belfast Gazette at http://www.edinburgh-gazette.co.uk/ and http://www.belfast-gazette.co.uk/ respectively.

Required parameters[golygu cod y dudalen]

  • issue: The issue number of the referenced Gazette
  • startpage: The page of the referenced Gazette on which the citation is found (or the first page of a range)
  • date: The publication date of the referenced Gazette. This should be in the format day month year.

For a link in a supplement to a London Gazette:

  • supp: To correctly format the URL to link to a page in a Gazette supplement, set this parameter to any value (typically, supp=yes); otherwise omit it or leave it blank.

Optional parameters[golygu cod y dudalen]

For producing a date of retrieval:

  • accessdate: Full date when item was accessed. Should not be wikilinked.

For a link to the Edinburgh, Oxford Gazette or Belfast Gazette:

  • city: Either "city=e" for Edinburgh Gazette, "city=b" for Belfast Gazette or "city=o" for the Oxford Gazette as the first 23 issues of the London Gazette were titled.

For use where a range of pages is to be referenced:

  • endpage: The last page in the range of pages.

To display the name of the gazette without a wikilink (e.g. if there are multiple uses of the template, allow the link on the first but disable the rest):

  • nolink: Specify this parameter with any value.

Obsolete parameters[golygu cod y dudalen]

  • notarchive: was formerly required to correctly format the URL to link to a page in a recent gazette (in approximately the last ten years). Since a change to the url scheme in January 2009, this parameter is redundant but may be found in links created prior to the change.
  • linkeddate: was formerly used to produce a wikilinked date. Wikilinking dates is now deprecated and the function of this parameter has been disabled. Use |date= instead.

Source of information for parameters[golygu cod y dudalen]

To find the information to put into the parameters:

  1. Visit the Gazette website search page at either:
  2. Enter search terms into the search fields including a date range
  3. When the list of matching Gazettes is displayed, click on a link and the site will open a window with a PDF image of a page of the gazette:
    1. From the dark band above the page image note the issue number. This may be up to five digits and also appear in the URL after ".../issues/".
    2. From the top of the page image note the page number. This may be up to five digits and also appears as the last group of characters in the URL.
    3. Note the publication date from the top of the page image
  4. If the reference needs to refer to a range of pages, find the last relevant page and note that from the page image or URL as before.
  5. Check if the page is part of an issue or a supplement
    1. If from a standard gazette issue, the following will be included in the URL, ".../pages/..." and no action is required.
    2. If the page is part of a supplement to an issue, the following will be included in the URL, ".../supplements/..." , the parameter "supp=" must be added to the template. Any character may follow, as long as it is not left blank.
  6. Optionally, if the Belfast or Edinburgh gazettes are to be referenced, add the "city=" parameter. The London Gazette is the default option and will be used if this parameter is not used or if anything other than the "city=e","city=b" or "city=o" is entered. "city=l" may be used to explicitly refer to the London Gazette. The first 23 issues of the London Gazette published as the Oxford Gazette so "city=o" should only be used to produce a citation to the Oxford Gazette.
  7. Add each of these to the template
  8. Add the Retrieval date
