Burial records of Crook Cemetery, Low Jobs Hill, and Tow Law Cemetery (Danís Castle Cemetery) are held by Durham County Council Bereavement Services  who may look up Thomas Lund who died in 1923 for you.

You said, "So though it would be nice to have access to more, if the Council enters an agreement with a commercial site such as Deceased Online then we'd likely lose this access we currently have."

None of the burial records at would be removed because they were filmed and transcribed by the LDS.  If Durham County Council decided to scan any burial or cremation records for Deceased Online, these would be only for registers of the municipal cemeteries and crematoria, not any of the churches.

Thanks.  I created the memorials after my original post because of information received subsequently from Durham County Council's Bereavement Services.  I am trying to persuade them to have burial registers scanned and uploaded to Deceased Online to make them more accessible to the public.

Catherine Lee died aged 76 on 5 Mar 1913 in Crook and was buried 9 Mar 1913 Crook Cemetery in grave 1729.  Her husband Matthew Lee died aged 54 on 6 Mar 1892, grave not found but is likely in Stanley St Thomas but unfortunately the register (1888-1894) is noted as having been destroyed in a fire at the church.

I am interested in any others named Lee buried in Crook and Billy Row and grateful if you would advise if your hold an index by surname.

In particular I am trying locate the graves of Matthew Lee who died aged 73 in Jul/Sep 1878 and his wife Mary Tirzah Lee who died aged 78 in Oct/Dec 1884.  They had a son John Lee born in 1846 last seen in the 1871 census with his parents.
