Thanks for your note and edits. Numbers of the first edits on some of those works didn't get the DNB links, so like you, we have been adding them as we progress. We do have a template {{DNB lkpl}} to utilise. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:02, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, @Billinghurst:. That's not mentioned on WS:WikiProject DNB/Wikification, and the similar templates which are mentioned are redlinks, so I didn't think to go looking. --ColinFine (talk) 22:38, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Cannot say that I have ever looked at that page (though may be I should one day). I can see that it is mentioned at Wikisource:WikiProject DNB/Style Manual. Noting that I am probably the worst help page person, and just done lots of edits over the years. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:44, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Hooly dooly, some of that advice pre-dates when we didn't have good scan coverage. I have had a rough hack, though think that the page is almost disposable, though don't have the time to give it a decent chop. @Charles Matthews: to note and 20c of thoughts. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:54, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
