When using Duplicate Search Merge the default sort is by Score and whilst the results can be truncated somewhat by using the "Start with Surname" option I would like more control over those results.

I believe one useful enhancement would be to provide the option for the results to be sorted by Primary Surname then rather than scanning up and down through the complete list the user could work to tidy the surname they are currently working.

Customers should never be frustrated by things they cannot do.
