William Dew, father Thomas and Sarah Welch, father Timothy.

Just a thought  :-\  Until 1980 Witton Cemetery had three chapels on-site.  Could the burial services have been conducted at one of these, rather than in a parish church?  :-\

Just a thought, I'm assuming that you have people living there in the various census years - occupations ?

Spion Kop is a very evocative place to visit. 

Have you tried to contact them to let them know of the anomalies?

I have no connections at all to Scotland, and therefore have no insight into the workings of such sites.

L/Cpl 4/6327 - 19th R. Hussars.  Died 5.1.1919 in France.  Widow - Violet J.

Do you have the marriage certificate, as this will give you the fathers' name for both Thomas and Ellen?

Mackworth would come into the Shardlow Registration District, and I can't see a Thomas Potter registered in 1864.  However, there is a John Thomas Potter registered in June quarter 1864.  From the GRO site, no mother's maiden name is given for John Thomas (and his surname has been transcribed as Polter).

Added:  Have you tried to contact the Regimental Museum?
