Useful websites for UK family history

While at the UK national archives (TNA) a couple of weeks ago I picked up the March 2009, the latest, edition of the information sheet "Useful Websites for Family History." It doesn't seem to be on their website in its entirety and I'm reluctant to reproduce the whole thing. Here are just a few I hadn't come across before:

http://rmhh.co.uk/occup/index.html - listing of names of occupations found in the census
www.arbeia.demon.co.uk/museums/location/uk/ukmilmus.htm - a guide to UK military and regimental museums
www.pcansr.net - Boer War nurses
www.bathnes.gov.uk/BathNES/lifeandleisure/leisure/localarchives/georgian/default.htm - search the Bath Chronicle newspaper 1770 - 1800
www.canalmuseum.org.uk/collection/family-history.htm - canals and canal families
www.open.ac.uk/ou5/Arts/chemists - British Chemists (1880 - 1970)
