I'm helping a friend with some of his tree and this record from TNA Online Catalogue might be relevant.

It appears not to be closed, according to the Catalogue:
Reference: HO 334/331/8026
Description: Naturalisation Certificate: Jozef Lipinski. From Poland. Resident in London. Certificate BNA8026 issued 20 October 1949.
Date: 1949 Oct 20
Held by: The National Archives, Kew

This death record is relevant to the tree, and may indicate why the cert is available:
d 1967q1 Hendon LEPINSKY Joseph 72 1895
His service pension record indicates that he was 23y 6m old on 24 Jul 1918 (at discharge from the army).

While a copy (digital or paper) of the document is obviously the best thing, budget constraints mean that the critical info from it would probably have to suffice.

If anyone can piggy-back this onto a visit for their own purposes, I'd be very grateful.
