John and Mary Ann Taylor of Willington County Durham
« on: Friday 30 March 18 06:48 BST (UK) »
  Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can give me a bit of help please.
 I'm having a lot of trouble finding the deaths of my husband's great grandparents
  Their names are John  (born 20 Dec 1856) and Mary Ann (born 1862) Taylor.
 I've been struggling to find them on the GRO indexes as I can't specify Willington for their residence.
   I've bought a couple of certificates but they weren't them.
 They may have died in hospital which would make the district different.
 
 After thinking John died in the 1930s I recently found him on the 1939 register.
 He was a retired coal miner, widowed and living at 11 York Street Willington with his son John William.
    So I'm wondering if anyone has access to the parish records for Willington or burial records.
       I would be so grateful to get this sorted as it's been a brick wall for a long time
         Thank you for any help you can give
              Barbara

In 1937, the parish of Willington was split between Bishop Auckland and Crook & Willington parish.
In 1938, both of these parishes came under the new Durham Western Registration District.

FreeBMD is showing:

March qtr 1943
Durham Western Registration District     vol 10a, page 241

Taylor, John     age 86
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

Oh thanks for that, I looked at that record but didn't know if it was right. The age fits if it was him.  Here's a photo of the old boy!
        Thank you
