Son of Lewis Nockalls Cottingham's Death[edit]

There is a contradiction in dates regarding the death of architect Lewis Nockalls Cottingham's son, Nockalls Johnson Cottingham. In this article on Hereford Catheral, it states that he died in 1857 but his own article states that he died in 1854. I did some checking and found that the ship he was on, the SS Artic of the American Collins Line, struck a french vessel and sank in the North Atlantic in 1854. I have corrected the date.

Some notes about the major source material added Dec 1, 2004.

"The Cathedrals of England and Wales: their history, architecture and associations", Cassell and Company, 1906. 2 vols. Quarto. Not attributed to any author. -- Hotlorp 05:33, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)

This article seems very out of date, much appears to be copied from some book. The Mappa Mundi, for example, it suggests is housed in the cathedral, when it is actually now in another building (and has been for quite some time). I can't say I've got much knowledge on this, so someone else is going to have to give this a good going over! EAi 23:15, 15 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Surname Change Of An Organist[edit]

One of the organists, "William Juglott" I'm 100% certain that this is a misspelling of his name which should be "William Inglott" who used to be organist in Norwich Cathedral[1] also and an ancestor of mine. I know it's not a proper reference, but here is some information on him [2]

Image from this article to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Hereford Cathedral Choir, Herefordshire, UK - Diliff.jpg and three other images will be appearing as picture of the day on 8 October 2018. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2018-10-08/1. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page.

Hereford Cathedral
Hereford Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Hereford. The site of the cathedral became a place of worship in the 8th century or earlier. However, the oldest part of the current building, the bishop's chapel, dates to the 11th century. The cathedral is dedicated to two saints, Saint Mary the Virgin and Saint Ethelbert the King. The latter was beheaded by Offa, King of Mercia in the year 794, and he was buried at the site of the cathedral. The cathedral contains the Mappa Mundi, a mediaeval map of the world created in around 1300 by Richard of Holdingham. The map is listed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

This picture shows the nave of the cathedral, viewed from the west.

John Farrant, subsection Organists[edit]

I see among notable organists instanced the name of John Farrant, bracketed with John Bull as a 16th century composer. However, it is wikilinked to Richard Farrant whose article mentions no John, and in the disambiguation list of Farrants the only John Farrant appearing, without wikilink, is described as possibly more than one man, recorded as being organist at Salisbury and one other cathedral. I suggest it be deleted if no published Hereford Cathedral connection be found for this name. I have added George Robertson Sinclair (also choirmaster) who has a wiki article and was a friend of Elgar.Cloptonson (talk) 17:45, 5 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
