Vicar’s wife writes fund-raising cookery book

This book was a recent, undated, find on eBay – I am guessing that the Mrs Basset in question was the wife of the vicar of Frimley and that the new church referred to in the poem must be St Pauls ?  There is an advert for P J Wellard (Late J Andrews) which puts the date of publication about 1910 at the latest?

I will be scanning the whole book and sharing it here as not only are the adverts interesting, but the recipes all have the names of their writers underneath.  I do wonder, though, if some were provided by the cooks and not the mistresses of the house?
