I need to make a fictional set of data to check that something at work will run properly when calculating pensions for widows and orphans.

Rather than have "Life 1, Life 2" etc, I have been mining GOT for names. ;D

I'm just wondering whether I should label this file "Spoilers" in case anyone else using it doesn't know who dies. ;)

Previously I've had a data set consisting of Vasquez, Hicks, Hudson, Apone, Dietrich, Gorman, Ferro, Drake and Spunkmeyer. Unfortunately their life expectancy wasn't good.

Making up postcodes for them has been fun too. Obviously, I've put the Baratheons in SW1A 1AA, and I put Daenerys in CT17 9BU (I figure it's what she wants!). Where would you place the Arryns?

Slow down - you'll end up in the frustrating waiting game like the rest of us.  Six years between two of the books there was. :o
