Esh or the separate place called Esh Winning. Both in County Durham. 
No Esh Manning. Possibly Manning came from Army Records with bad pronouncing of Esh Winning or bad transcription.

St. Godric's is a Durham City, Church.

As for the scene. All I can see is a group of mainly younger people? Is it the damage to the building on the bottom right, possibly caused by a car or lorry that is attracting the crowd?

Under one cimcumstance. If the soldier/sailor/airman died of any cause in England, Scotland or Ireland then the death would be treated like any civilian death.

I would have thought that the best way of handling older BMD certificates would be to release them free to the public but with no cost to the government. Charging for 1837 documents is unacceptable.
