To confirm Rosie's answer,  it would be Tynemouth RD.

The 1901 census has them in the Civil Parish/Urban District of Weetslade which does appear on that list.    Registration district lists will not often cover Village/Hamlets (ie Dudley) within the urban/rural district.  :)

Just to confirm:
Registration Districts consisted of Parishes, and it is these that are listed on the helpful GenUKI pages.
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)
