Hola todas,
Due to start my first camino on Tuesday (22nd) with the Camino Ingles. Was planning to get my credencial in Ferrol but read that the tourist offices don't always open in accordance with the advertised times. I gather that the cathedral is the reliable option but as I've now left it too late to order one online I'd appreciate a bit of reassurance from others about this. Thanks!

Francés five times, Madrid two days, Ingles once.
You might factor in enough time the day before walking to look for one. Good luck and Buen Camino!

So - absolute beginner's question - if I go into Santiago en route to store luggage might I be better off getting a credencial there? Ie will it serve for a Ferrol start?

Yes. Any credential, even a used one, will get you into albergues. A completed credential will have a Santiago Pilgrim Office stamp in it signifying completion, but the Office will stamp it a second time, too. A new one from Santiago will be fine. The Pilgrim Office has them, and I am sure other places will have them as well, but I have never asked.
