The following list were persons receiving communion on at least some of the following dates: 29 April 1877; 11 Nov 1877; 30 Mar 1878; 13 Oct 1878; 27 Apr 1879; 12 Oct 1879; 28 Mar 1880; 04 Dec 1880 and 21 May 1882. I have just listed the names and any notes which were written in...if anyone wants to know exactly which dates the person received communion, just e-mail me and I will look it up for you. Note: There is no way to know why a note 'dismissed' is written, it could mean the person left for another place or church. And, there is also no way why some names were 'erased'.
