The Octave, in Lent, for Hexham and Newcastle is interesting. I remember looking into a few years ago when I noticed it. The SRC indicated that no new such ones would be approved. Even more interesting is that it, in effect, disappears on Passion Sunday, except in concurrence.
In Hexham and Newcastle St Cuthbert, rather than St George is 'Patron' (at Suffrages) rather than St George: might that make a difference?
I have a copy of the resolutions of the Synods of Westminster (the Synods of the Church in England and Wales 1852, 1855, 1859 and 1873), and it is frustrating that the Calendar isn't addressed in them. Something must have been arranged at the time of the restoration of the Hierarchy because England and Wales started to use their own calendar then instead of that of Rome.
