FindMyStreet, which shows the USRNs does not map it at all in the vector layer, although the raster layer below does show a name a9but not the one on the ground.  In order to name it, as it is on the ground, I would have to tag the same name on 2 streets.

No, not yet.  Perhaps I should, but I doubt they will know any more than I do (not very modest of me I know!)

Yes, they do look like 2 streets,  but they are really one street that leads to 2 blocks of houses, accessed only by footpaths.
