*Ref : These letters are commonly used locally to identify the individual parishes.

Note: They are also still used on automobile licence plates to identify the parish of registration, eg: M2245, in St. Michael. Where the number of vehicles registered in the parish have exceeded the following 4-digit limit (9999), a second character is added to the first to expand the available registrations, eg: MA2245, MB321, and so on.
