    Default 'Below' as an attribute

    Is it grammatically correct to use 'below' as an attribute to nouns?
    e.g. "Please consult the below information" vs. "Please consult the information below"

    Welcome to the forum.

    The second is correct. The second is increasingly found but is better written as "Please consult the following information".

    Thank you very much! Do I understand it right that the first one is wrong (at least in written speech)?

    Sorry - in my reply I meant to say that The first one is increasingly found but is better written or said as "Please consult the following information".
