‘Wilcrick’ is a welsh name which translates as ‘bare hill’ – the hill referred to is now tree clad and is the location of an iron age fort from where extensive views down the Severn Estuary are afforded; essential for an early warning of Irish invasion up the estuary. The tiny church of St Mary the Virgin, is located on the lower slope of the hill and once served a much larger settlement abandoned during the middle ages in common with several other locations in the local area.[1]

The church is located at ST4099087980 (Lat/Lon 51.587569, -2.853143). [Map of St Mary's]

Please open this so I can correct the Location.

The profiles should be in the Category.

What location do you suggest ?

The profiles Are in the category as well. I will keep them here on the church profile as well as they are a part of the church history. And people who are not used to the wikitree category system can easily see relatives under church profiles, which I think is very useful. I want the profiles being as accessible as possible. Having a quick glance at the list of profiles connected to a church also gives you a quick overview over the people who lived in the parish, and looking for churches in a certain area is a more straight forward way for many non-wikitreers, than the category system is. Personally I find the category so complex that I can't use it.
