Subject: RE: True things you couldn't make up.
There was a dentist in Weymouth, Dorset, who had written large upon his brass plaque, and in the Yellow Pages = I Savage, Dentist.

And without a word of a lie, my first doctor was a Doctor Paine. Our village bobby was PC Crook, who was followed by PC Pinches.

There is a hairdressers near me who frequently advertises that 'Mr Comber is now cutting'...

And then there's the vicar of Whitchurch Canonicorum, who, in the 1840's, was the Reverend Goforth.
