4. Add the actual parish name where '''PARISH NAME Online Parish Records''' is located near the beginning of the newly-inserted code.

Example: '''Besselsleigh Online Parish Records'''

5. Add the actual parish name to the beginning line of the "Church records" section so that instead of {{PAGENAME}} it has the parish name.

Example: Besselsleigh parish registers of christenings, marriages and burials are available online for the following years:
Make sure to remove the curly brackets so that it is Besselsleigh and not {{Besselsleigh}}

6. Put "Adding more complete table" in the Summary box and then Save the page.
