I have also looked at the civil deaths for Ann Burn(s) and have found the following:

Ann Burn

March Quarter 1854; Volume 10b; Page 179
March Quarter 1855; Volume 10b; Page 212

Ann BURNS

December 1849; Volume 25; Page 11

The newspaper announcement of the death of John Burn junior says 'second son of Mr John Burn' which implies that John Burn senior was still alive in August 1838. With that in mind, I have looked at the civil death registrations for Berwick District which covers Kyloe. I have found the following:

December Quarter 1846; Volume 25; Page 16
June Quarter 1848; Volume 25; Page 7
March Quarter 1851; Volume 25; Page 9 This one can be discounted as I found a burial entry which shows that he was aged 26 when he died

I also looked at John BURNS and found the following (recorded in Northumberland District):

March Quarter 1858; Volume 10b; Page 207
June Quarter 1858; Volume 10b; Page 187
September Quarter 1860; Volume10b; Page 177
March Quarter 1872; Volume 10b; Page 263 This one can be discounted - shows age at death as 68 years
September 1874; Volume 10b; Page 279 This one can be discounted - shows age at death as 30 years

I have also looked at local newspapers for the above deaths but can not find anything.

It looks as though John and Ann had a second son -- the Berwick Advertiser dated 4 August 1838 reports:

'DEATHS'
'On the 27th inst, at West Kyloe, near Lowick, John, second son of Mr John Burn, shepherd of that ?'

Northumberland / Re: which Geoffrey Cobb?
« on: Tuesday 15 June 21 14:01 BST (UK)  »
There are several trees on Ancestry that show he was in the Northumberland Fusiliers when he married Elsie Mills and the trees also show that he married a jane Robinson in 1949. It may be that you will have to purchase the marriage certificate of the second marriage to confirm the status of Geoffrey. (I have also searched for the births of other Geoffrey B Cobb but the only other one would have been too old to serve in WW2)

When I was researching my County Durham ancestors, I came across one that read something like 'a stranger found dead under a hedgerow'. I remember this well as the next burial entry was an ancestor of mine.

I have seen this many times for burials (especially in the 18th and 19th Centuries) in rural areas -- I have always understood this to indicate that the deceased person was not from that Parish and that no one knew where that person was from.
