Note. When first rung this method was called St George's Day S Major but the "Day" was reluctantly dropped under pressure from certain members of the Central Central who claimed the name was too similar to a previously rung method called Saint George's Day S Major (which at the time was incorrectly listed as St George's Day in the CC method lists).
