        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.
