When citing the page number into an essay do you put the period inside the citation?

When writing (in British English), quotations are shown within pairs of quotation marks, i.e. "double" or 'single' inverted commas . This is the correct form for 'direct speech' being quoted, whether the speech/extract being quoted is referring to something previously spoken or written.If the quotation itself ends with a period, and the quotation is the last clause in the sentence, then the final period can be included, as someone once said, "...inside the quotation marks."In this way the sentence is ended, with no need of a further period.When page numbers are cited, unless these are part of a quotation, then quotation marks are not included.
