I'm totally new to GIS. However, I've proudly managed to create a map, which is correctly geo-referenced with a Great Britain Ordnance Survey (OS) background (streetview level) and I've added some point data.

How do I create or import a layer with the OS grid lines?

You can find the OS Grids here


Download the shapefiles and then load them in

You will probably need to adjust the styling and turn on labelling using the tile name as a text label
