The Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) is generally a good start point if you are stuck for where to begin. It looks like your list will be rather long - there were something like 30 000 V1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V1_flying_bomb)s manufactured, of which 10 000 were fired at the UK, 7 000 hit land and about 3 500 of those hit London. 1402 V2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V2_rocket)s were fired at Great Britain, almost all of them at London.

In history channel the V1 killed 7000 british and the V2 2500. But sure there are other theories of how many killed :roll:

Have you tried contacting people like the public record office? That sort of thing is highly unlikely to be on the internet, and there wouldn't be sufficient market for a book on the subject I would think...
