Q.

If we are intending to buy near Alford, in the parish of Ruckland, do we need a chancel search?

In Alford's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
