"At this funeral there was a hearse and two mourning coaches so there can't have been many there."

Ah, but how many people lived within walking distance of the church!

Hi Bodger

Daughter's name Emily M born Scarborough according to 1891 Census.

So looks like this one on FreeBMD?

Births Dec 1889   
Cartwright    Emily Milinda        Scarbro'    9d   371

You can find Mother's Maiden Name on the GRO Online Index.

               
Name:                                   Mother's Maiden Surname:    Order: 
CARTWRIGHT, EMILY  MILINDA     BROWN     Order
GRO Reference: 1889  D Quarter in SCARBOROUGH  Volume 09D  Page 371

Now looking for a Cartwright/Brown marriage that fits!

I don't know if it helps, but James was born Kingstone/Kingston and is there on the 1841 and later census.

Mary was born Barham.

Both places come under the Bridge RD.
