I am so sorry, I have checked the Evening Chronicles of that period but the print on the microfilmed pages is abysmal for the death notices. 

What a shame  :(

What are the full details on the certificate - including name of informant? (Clutching at straws)

Hi, and thank you for the lookup!

The name Margaret doesn't ring a bell. As far as we know she only had the one daughter, Norah, my husband's mother, and a son George Edward Brown. He died in 1971 in Farndon, Gosford, Newcastle.

George Delafield Brown, her husband, died in 1920 in Tynemouth.

Her home address was down as 49 St Lawrence Square, Newcastle.
The informant was F. Dixon of 182 Hillview Avenue, Newcastle.

I guess the next step would be to find where the burial was?

Pearce, Davies, Mulhall, Jesse, Savage.

Her home address was down as 49 St Lawrence Square, Newcastle.

That was just round the corner from where she was living in 1959 (Albion Buildings).
