Buildings, Faith, and Worship
Oxford University Press

All the buildings in this list were begun, and in most cases completed, before 1850 and include both Anglican and non-Anglican examples. The entry format is similar to that in Appendix B except that buildings are not categorized by liturgical type, since they do not vary in this respect, and there are no entries for the Isle of Man or Ireland. All entries include the date of the building and most give the name of the architect and, in the case of commissions financed by private individuals, that of the person who commissioned the design.
