No, just the one error.  Although the church is on Prebend 
Street, it was formerly called St James, Prebend Square. 
See for example Bell News, 17 Feb 1906, p 593.  I can't see 
a Prebend Square in that area on any late 19th or early 20th 
century Ordnance Survey maps, but maybe it was a local name 
for the open area at the junction of Prebend Street and 
Popham Road?
