Appendix
Devotional Statistics of the Churches, Chapels, and Stations in England and Wales

TABLE 1 gives the number of churches, chapels, and stations in all the dioceses of England and Wales, as well as the number of distinct confraternities, guilds, and sodalities attached to them for the sample years between 1850 and 1914. Figures are also given by year and diocese of the number of churches offering cateehizing, confession, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, Public Rosary, Quarant'ore or Forty Hours' Devotion, the Stations or Way of the Cross, and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

The figures in TABLE 1 have been taken from church advertisements listed in the Catholic Directory for the relevant years; according to the Directory, some details of confraternities and services were omitted from 1890, and so information for the years 1890-1914 must be treated as approximate and as under-representing the real number of devotional services and societies offered by the churches of England and Wales.

Since several dioceses changed their boundaries and/or their names over the course of the period under scrutiny, it seemed useful to list the information both by diocese proper and by 'diocesan group', an invented category which remains constant over time. Thus the diocese of Beverley, which split into the dioceses of Leeds and Middlesbrough in 1878, but continued to minister to the same geographical area of Yorkshire, has been treated as the diocese of 'Beverley' until 1878, and the combined figures given for the dioceses of Leeds and Middlesbrough have been treated as those of the 'diocesan group of Beverley' thereafter in order to allow for comparisons of the devotional activity of Yorkshire churches to be made both before and after 1878. Similarly, Southwark diocese was divided into the dioceses of Southwark and Portsmouth in 1882; after that date Southwark and Portsmouth dioceses are treated together in all calculations as the 'diocesan group of Southwark'.

Name changes have been preserved in this table of raw data but regularized for the purpose of calculations. Thus Hexham diocese, which changed its name to the diocese of Hexham and Newcastle in 1861, has been assigned the 'diocesangroup' name of Hexham and Newcastle throughout. Similarly, the diocese of Newport and Menevia, which became Newport diocese in 1896, is treated for computational purposes as the 'diocesan group' of Newport. The diocese of
