An earlier blog looked at churches in England bearing the name of our patron, St John Chrysostom. What about other dedications?
How many churches are there in England dedicated to St Pancras, St Onslow or St Peter ad Vincula?
Are there any churches dedicated to King Charles, or Prince Albert?
Which is the most common church dedication in England?
Which of these saints has the most churches in their name: St Alban, St Cuthbert or St Giles?
We’ve attached to this post a fascinating list of English church dedications from Miss Arnold Forster’s monumental 3 volume work ‘Studies in English Church Dedications.’ (1899).
Have a look! It gives a very interesting insight into the frequency, and locations of church dedications, and answers the questions above.
What’s the most unusual dedication? Without doubt: St Mary the Virgin, St Ursula and the 11,000 virgins
