From what I can see it says.....The Cath & Parish Church in the Parish of Manchester???

It beats me....never heard of it.....anyone know what/where it is? Does/should it have another name?:conf:

Oh hang on.....should that be Cathedral doh! still need confirmation though.

There seem to be references on other message boards that it refers to Manchester Cathedral.

well *scratches head*

I would also say that it is Manchester Cathedral.. but I too think it is worded oddly.. lol but that might have been how they did it back then.

Some Cathedrals are also parish churches - especially the newer ones.

That would be true, I believe, of Birmingham, St Alban's, Blackburn... (If it's needed, I could probably look it up in my Crockford's.)

Have you looked to see if the marriage is on LancsBMD - a lot of their transcriptions have the name of the chuch listed.
