Yes Spelk - They were married on the 24 September 1948 as I have a copy of the marriage record.  They were married at The Parish Church in the Parish of Sunderland, but don't know which Church that would be.

Thanks everyone for your great input.

I didn't know Christopher was a Baptist thought he was Methodist, but that must be the reason for unconsecrated ground, being nonconformist. Looking at the name of the Vicar who performed the ceremony was a great idea.  I have looked at the Vicar for Elizabeth and he was a Rev Johnson Bailey, Vicar of Pallion and he was C of E, hence the consecrated ground I presume.  Funny they were two different denominations.  Maybe that was why the rest of the family became Methodists?

The photo on Ancestery is indeed it.  The lady is the relly who sent it to me.  She doesn't know about the other grave plot yet.

Got quite excited when Jon mentioned two others in the same plot as Christopher.  Assumed that meant relatives, but they are not related at all.  Must be the way the plots are worked out.

Boo, it is a great thought about the gravestone being put up later.  They did have a daughter who became relatively well off.  Lived at The Westlands which I understand was quite well to do at the time.  She and her husband are buried at the Cemetery and their names appear on the Ward Plan on the edge (Davis) so I presume it must be a good gravestone too.

Once again, thanks for your input.  Food for thought.

I hope someone can clarify something for me.  I have a photo of my gg grandparents headstone in the Bishopwearmouth Cemetery which a relative took many years ago.  Elizabeth Holburn D: 1883 and her husband Christopher in 1891.  They both appear on the same headstone. (Which has always appeared to me to be very grand considering he was a Shipwright in Pallion).

I recently discovered the FS lists of Burial Registers and started mapping out all my relatives last resting places on the Ward Map in case I ever come up North.  However, It seems that Elizabeth is the only one in Ward 3 Section A/E Plot 1795 as I discover that Christopher (her husband) is in Ward 11 Section A Plot 1172.

My question is, is there another gravestone for Christopher?  He also appears to be in unconcecrated ground whereas she is in concecrated ground.  He was baptised in a C of E Church (but probably became Methodist), however, he was illigitimate.  Would that make a difference?

Thanks barryb, but she was born 1857/8.  Good shout though.

Hi Stan and Jen

Thanks for your input and thanks for checking Ryhope cemetery.  I have already checked St Matthews, but she is not there.

Thanks again

Could anyone tell me where people who were members of the Methodist Chapels in Silksworth buried. 
I'm looking for a Mary Jane Parker who died 15 January 1922.
