Thank you. Seems to be confirmed by some Pronouncing Dictionaries I now have been able to check. BBC Pronouncing Dictionary of British Names, G.M. Miller, and the Pronouncing Dictionaries by A.C.Gimson and the one by J.C.Wells. Yet on line I also found 'Tin Drum'. http://www.coast2coast.co.uk/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000059.html

Makes me wonder whether there is some real "linguistic authority" for the pronunciation of English proper names.
