Dear Sir or Madam,

I am interested in researching 'blue plaque' schemes that are in operation, or have previously been in operation, by local authorities.

The Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_plaque... suggests that there is a 'thriving' blue plaque scheme in Edinburgh.

Could you tell me whether this scheme is, or was, run by Edinburgh Council?

If so, could you provide, if available, a list of plaques that the council has erected. Preferably including the location of the plaque, the inscription upon it, and the date that it was erected.

Pleas also advise if you have any other information about such a blue plaque scheme, such as the criteria for inclusion, and so on.

Yours faithfully,

Frankie Roberto
