Parishes project

I have started a project for missing civil parishes at User:Crouch, Swale/Missing parishes. The missing parishes in Cheshire are:

And these exists as a redirect only but should have separate articles:

A total of 18, see User:Crouch, Swale/Missing parishes (1)#Cheshire. Crouch, Swale ( talk) 20:17, 26 October 2021 (UTC)

@ Crouch, Swale: I'm not 100% sure what purpose is served by some of these? They seem to have mostly resulted from a CP rearrangement in Cheshire West & Chester which amalgamated a lot of CPs. As far as I know there's no population data yet for the new CPs but it happened after I moved to Scotland, so perhaps someone else can confirm.
I deliberately put Marbury cum Quoisley CP at Marbury, Cheshire; I'd be surprised if there was enough for a separate article on the CP beyond a microstub. As I recall, there's no settlement at Quoisley to speak of these days, just Quoisley Meres. It's already impossible to get population figures for Marbury because it's reported combined with Wirswall, and the parish council combines it with Wirswall and Norbury. Perhaps someone more familiar with the others could comment. Espresso Addict ( talk) 02:23, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
As an aside I'm pretty annoyed that you got Wrenbury moved to Wrenbury-cum-Frith, and minded to undo the move. I used to live there and "Wrenbury-cum-Frith" does not exist; if anything the CP is formally "Wrenbury cum Frith", but the village is called "Wrenbury" by everyone and should, I think, be at that title by common name and by common sense (why have a potentially hyphenated or not title that no one uses?). I wish someone had bothered to at least ping me or ask me about the question before unilaterally moving it. I'm not very active but am responding to talk-page messages. @ Crouch, Swale and Anthony Appleyard: Espresso Addict ( talk) 02:35, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
@ Espresso Addict: Population data is available from City Population ( example) and perhaps also from Cheshire West and Chester council, see Shocklach Oviatt and District. There is no need or requirement for the population figures to have been published for the article to be created anyway.
With Marbury the village is called " Marbury" while the parish is " Marbury cum Quoisley". Marbury, Cheshire should describe the village while Marbury cum Quoisley should describe the parish. With Wrenbury the village is called " Wrenbury-cum-Frith" and the parish is called " Wrenbury cum Frith" so they should be described in 1 article. If you think the move was inappropriate you can revert it per WP:BRD but it does seem like the village is now "Wrenbury-cum-Frith" though many sources do use just "Wrenbury".
