Is Glos the correct abbreviation for gloucester?
- BookbinderLv 76 months agoFavorite Answer
No, it is not. Glos is the correct abbreviation for the county of Gloucestershire. You asked if Glos is the correct abbreviation for Gloucester; Gloucester is the county town, and not a county! So, Glos is correct for the county, but not for the town.

However, when abbreviating proper nounds (names), there should be a 'full stop/period' at the end; 'Glos.'

No it's not. As said, Glos. is the shortened version of GloucesterSHIRE. Not Gloucester, the town.
