All I can add right now is deaconesses date from the 1800s; women deacons from the mid-1900s. The former were/are (I'm fairly sure the Episcopalians and Church of England don't have them any more) the equivalent of RC religious orders of sisters doing active work like teaching or nursing; the latter are in Anglican holy orders. The Anglican deaconess habit looks like some nuns' habits. It was an older, more Protestant thing pre-dating the founding of Anglican groups of monks and nuns that more or less followed traditional RC practice (now they're very liberal).

There's the Order of the Holy Cross, which is as I described Anglican monks today, and then there's the Society of the Holy Cross (known by its Latin initials SSC), a fraternity of Anglo-Catholic parish priests, some of whom have traditional services.
Yes the SSC I have seen their websites and they have some very beautiful worship.
