I've never heard it refered to as render Nickydupps. In my area, we call it parging. I have a little experience at repairing the inside of fireplaces. I've always used refractory mortar to point up the bricks and to parge the inside for traditional fireplaces. I wouldn't think that you would need to do it much if you are installing an insert wood stove. The steel casing should provide some protection unless your bricks are greatly deteriated. Many wood stove inserts these days have an inner and outer casings, with a blower circulating air inbetween.

"Render" is English for "stucco", broadly. Sand/cement should be fine what you are doing; 1 part masonry cement to 3 parts sand.

To a 3 to 1 mix I would throw in a 1/4 shovel of type 10 portland cement. I always found it makes a smoother and trowels nicer.

We are just about to have a wood burning stove fitted and have a similar question really. We have a 1950's house so the bricks are grey and ugly now the brickwork has been exposed since taking out the fireplace. We would like it rendered but have been told it will crack so the guy fitting intends to coat over the brickwork. I was really hoping for a smooth finish...does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
