Most of the fragment 'contains offices for St Melores of Amesbury. The use is certainly monastic and the presence of a prayer to St Edith confirms the view that it is English. There are indications that Melores has a full office with vigil and octave, so it must be Amesbury' (ex inf. Francis Wormald)
