Hi Angela,

That is, indeed, one method that looks as if it should give The Answer - but
I know of 2 other CofE chuches in WAR where the 'Church' - presumably the
Parochial Church Council - has different ideas from the Diocese as to the
'true' spelling of the dedication!

It's the apparent lack of any Official Listing - or, if there is such a
thing, its whereabouts - that is the underlying reason behind the difficulty
of determining Dedications :-(
