Hello
Does anyone have some more information about the death of John Bell whose death is registered Jan. 1859 in the Bishopwear Cemetery?

The only information I can add is from the free index on Durham Records Online which states that his residence at time of death was 13 Hopper Street, and that he was 11 years old (this also available from the GRO Index)

Here's the full Cemetery Register entry (from Family Search).
John was the son of Robert Bell, a Turner.

Many many thanks. 
Have also found Jane Bell, another relative who died in 1864.
Can someone post the Bishopwear cemetery burial registers from 1851 to 1855 please.
Looking for father, etc.

Oh. Many thanks.  Could you suggest a cemetery close by which would have  been used by the family prior to 1856.

St Michael's Bishopwearmouth seems the most likely place, for a start.

However I can't see that its burial records are online.

Yo could try Durham Records Online, which has the burials going up to 1856, but it's a pay-per-vieew site, so you would need to buy some credits to see the full entries. However the free index shows addresses and approx. dates of birth which might be some help to you.  https://www.durhamrecordsonline.com/NewSearch.php

I didn't know about the Durham records on line - so a nice one for me to work with. Thank you. However, did look for John (and there was one born in 1791 and died in 1851 but not him. I bought it just to check the website out).

I have since emailed Durham Record Office, and asked about the St Michaels Bishoperwearmouth records as I can't seem to find them anywhere.  Hopefully they can help.
