History

For 1857–1868 an S sector of the London postal district existed.

Similarly, there were also S-prefixed postal districts in the compass-based system used in Glasgow: Glasgow S1, S2, S3 and S4 areas changed to postcodes G41 to G44.

S64, Mexborough post town, was earmarked for use as DN13 which has never been used, see DN postcode area.
