Have you had a look at the DIY Projects section of the site. There are quite a few projects relating to Electrics that may be of some help:

I really wonder if you need a wiring diagram should you be doing the job? Also if coming from the consumer unit it would be part P. But in true Blue Peter style here is one I did earlier if you scroll to bottom there are some diagrams.
Remember being an electrician is 20% getting things to work and 80% knowing all the rules and regulations so do be careful.
