Other Archbishops of the Anglican Communion (Wales, Armagh and Dublin)

How to Address Other Archbishops of the Anglican Communion

The recommended style of address is as follows:

Beginning of letter Dear Archbishop
End of letter Yours sincerely
Envelope The Most Rev the Lord Archbishop of Wales; The Most Rev the Lord Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland; The Most Rev the Lord Archbishop of Dublin and Primate of Ireland
Verbal address Archbishop
Description in conversation The Archbishop of Wales/Armagh/Dublin

Signatures

The Archbishop of the Church in Wales signs himself (after a cross) Forename Cambrensis; the Archbishop of Armagh signs himself Alan Armagh, and the Archbishop of Dublin signs himself John Dublin.

Retired Archbishops

On resigning, an Archbishop reverts to the status of a Bishop, and should in principal be addressed as Rt Rev rather than Most Rev. By courtesy, however, he may still be addressed as Archbishop, unless he is actually appointed as a Bishop in this country - when he will be addressed as a Bishop.
