English resources via Andover

I was checking out the website for the Andover (Hampshire) Family History Group and found a good short summary of a talk given in September by Mark Pearsall,  Principal Records specialist from the National Archives, on Apprenticeship records. It was in the group's September newsletter, part of a collection at http://www.andoverhgs.org.uk/#/newsletter/4534868822

The newsletter includes a good summary of new resources, some at the major commercial sites, others I'd not known about and ranging further afield than Andover and Hampshire.

One was a website containing a list of Lancashire police officers (1840-1925). The website, which returned an error when I tried it, is:

There is also this list of indexes to records at the Worcestershire Record Office
