Finds a list of towns or villages that contain the specified postcode.

The postcode can be either a full postcode, a postcode district (the first half of the postcode) or a postcode area (the first one or two letters only).

Each matching town or village is returned as a PartialAddress, which contains the name of the town or village as the Description and a unique identifier as the ID. The caller can use the Description to select the required town or village, and the corresponding ID can be used as input to the StreetsByLocalityKey or AddressesByLocalityKey methods to further refine the address.
