The local group for members of the Society of Indexers in the London area. Anyone passing through is always very welcome to attend. Meetings are usually held two or three times a year, sometimes visiting a place of interest such as the Dickens Museum in Holborn or having a pub lunch for a general chat about indexing and other matters.
The London group runs a discussion forum that is open to all members of the Society.

We were fortunate that our March 2020 visit to the Dickens Museum in Holborn took place just before the lockdown. Based in the Victorian family home of Dickens and where he wrote many of his novels, it was a fascinating place to visit. Beforehand we had a drink and a bite to eat in a suitably atmospheric old-fashioned local pub, the Duke in Bloomsbury.
During lockdown we kept in touch with regular meetings on Zoom, including a successful peer review inNovember 2020.
Meetings in 2023
March 2023: Zoom meeting during which we chatted about recent indexing projects.
June 2023: Five of the group visited the Freud Museum in Hampstead where Freud lived for the last year of his life. Freud’s study houses his famous couch, together with his desk and antiquities’ collection.
Future meetings: The next meeting will be a Christmas lunch in a convenient pub in central London. Further details will be circulated in due course.
