What source is used for UK postcodes?

#1

Post by MaughanPD »

Hi all, I was wondering what source is used for LDS maps to produce the UK postcodes, I have noticed a few errors on some postcodes and wondered if the source might be a problem in producing the correct postcodes.

Thanks

The source is essentially the address data from MLS. If you are noticing incorrect postcodes in the map, the first thing to check is to make any corrections needed to the postcodes on individual membership/household records within MLS and then transmit them to CHQ though the Send/Receive process.

If the changes made in MLS are later reflected on lds.org/directory, then the next step would be to do a unit refresh, make the needed corrections to the addresses within MLS and then transmit them to CHQ again via the Send/Receive function.

http://www.royalmail.com/postcode-finder is probably the best source to check your UK postcodes in MLS against.
