St. Asaph

The Queen has made my town of birth into a city for her jubilee. I am unsure how this affects my position with regards to the line of succession, but It's a boost, surely?

You never know, HM the Q might make you a Lady of the Knight!

Re: St. Asaph

Congrats to the people of St. Asaph and the other new cities... Perth and Chelmsford I believe?

 

Does this mean you will now have a more regal signoff in your forum posts guy? 😉

Re: St. Asaph

Apparently as I only spent the first six hours of my existence in the city, then I am not entitled to any regal rewards.

They've closed the hospital now, so my daughters were born in an even smaller town nearby.

Here's one for you history fans though. The hospital I was born in was named after a more famous local than I, HM Stanley; he who uttered (or not) the famous words, "Dr Livingstone, I presume?".

Re: St. Asaph

Ah well... perhaps on a visit by the Queen you could ask for a regal upgrade! 😉

 

Good fact to remember for a pub quiz...

Re: St. Asaph

I too was born in HM Stanley Hospital - a former workhouse.

 

Although I always thought St Asaph was a city giving that it had a cathedral......

It's a common misconception that Anglican cathedrals must be in cities and cities must have Anglican cathedrals. In the UK there are 13 towns with cathedrals and 18 cities without.

 

Have a look here (needs updating): http://www.lovemytown.co.uk/Cathedrals/Cathedrals.htm.
