I suspect there was a mistake made when recording burial in parish register. Many were written up a lot later than the event.

I think this is probably right. 

The incumbent at Catmore from 1848 to 1853 was one Thos. Mitchell, and it is noted that he "held various curacies" (source: a framed list in the church).  The registers were possibly not regularly updated.

It doesn't explain the delay in registration, but it's interesting that there's a batch of belated registrations. 
That was a useful bonus from West Berks RO!
