1939 Caldicotts and Where They Lived

I have recently finished collecting data from the 1939 Register, a national register of Great Britain and Northern Ireland instigated by the outbreak of WW2. This document not only helped with civilian administration throughout the war for identity cards, organising rationing, etc., but also provided the foundation for NHS records.
The data I have collated is currently only for the Caldicott spelling variation of the Caldicott surname, although I intend to expand this research to include all variants and deviants of the surname.
The information I have collected shows an interesting distribution of Caldicotts across the counties of England and Wales as the chart below shows –
