Re: the WIki.FamilySearch.org England "Parishes" pages:

The county lists of parishes such as Suffolk Parishes page lists only parishes or chapels [of ease] and not other jurisdictional levels, such as registration districts or (town) boroughs--though recognizing that some RD's are named after a parish name.

Thus, in the spirit of this standard, we included a page for All Saints Sudbury which formerly had no stand-alone page for it.

According to this standard, (County) "Parish" pages (for each individual parish) lists only the parish/chapelry level of jurisdiction. Normally the lists are held to that rule and standard. In the Parish History treatise of each, or, in rare cases where a parish page includes a 'Description' heading, it may be a strong point of emphasis (under the Description) to include a treatise or something about that township/parish and/or the fact that it may also be the name of the borough and with brief but significant content about the borough.

The way and manner in which the current "Sudbury All Saints" page displays--is not meant to be 'in concrete'. But it does reflect the standard set by and according to the other counties throughout England and Wales county ("Parishes") lists.

On another perspective, it may be noted that the "Parish History" is a place where critical data is made immediately available for the researcher to see and make an accurate determination as just what local church registers may be needed in order to solve their genealogical research problems. For example, knowing that a parish, i.e. Ashbourn, Derbyshire is not the only ancient curacy wherein registers of christenings and/or marriages and burials may be found, but that Alsop en le Dale chapelry/chapel of ease existed simultaneously within its boundary and which held christening registers from the year 1701/2. Or, that Manchester Cathedral Our Lady, & St Denys has over 150 chapelries subdividing its parish boundary.
