Just read through a short discussion about differences in street names in
OSM and 'OS Locator', and problems caused by differences in names given
The classic problem is where the road street sign says something like 'Dukes
Drive' but OS locator states Duke's Drive.
Noticed that common view was OSM mapped what was on the ground, so road sign
name was added.

Having come across roads where road names differ on adjacent roads signs,
I'm not too sure road signs can be 100% relied on, but OS also clearly make
Has anyone heard of how this problem is dealt with by authorities (eg
councils) as they seem to rely on OS as a definitive source for mapping
