Can't find any other information for George, not even a death.
1921 birth is coming from BMD.  His son is still alive but not able to communicate. 
Thought i'd try the members before I had to buy the certificate!


Family History Beginners Board / Need help with Warren family
« on: Saturday 25 June 16 07:36 BST (UK)  »

The info I have is George Edward Warren married Mary Tennick in 1943 Durham Central.

There are 2 George Edward Warren's born in Co Durham; 1921 Gateshead with mother Blacklock & 1924 Weardale mother Sifflette (Siffleet).  I have been able to follow the Sifleet connection but do not think this is the correct family. 
The Blacklock / Warren I have only been able to find a sibling Jessie and can't find who the parents were.  Can anybody help?

Many thanks


Many thanks for this information I will be buying this book!

Hi Mc Talbot

I started doing the war memorials and the headstones in St George's years ago just as a project for myself and because my husbands gt grandfather is on both memorials, but the local community centre wanted to try to put something together for the 100 years.

The council are only interested in the men who lived in a few of the streets in south moor and came to the community hall for help.
The Brinton brothers are not in the streets they are interested in but I have an extensive amount of information on nearly all of the men on the memorials  and I had been stuck on John & James for sometime until recently!  Just thought it might be nice to know where James was buried.

Have you any personal connection?

Many thanks McTalbert

Yes I have the service records and I am working on a War Memorial Project (South Moor) with the Council.  The Brinton brothers both appearing on the two memorials you mentioned is what has brought me to try to find James's buriel.

Many thanks for the information from New Stanley Cemetery, I was led to believe that no Brinton name appeared there by the Graves department.  I think I may have to buy James's death certificate to see whether he did infact die at Winterton Hospital; if so he may have been buried there.

Thank you for your help & offer of photos but I think your information will be more than enough  ;D


I am looking for a burial record if anyone is going to Durham Records Office.  I have already checked St George's & Dave Burgess at the Council has checked the two in Stanley.
I am looking at St Joseph's as a possible now because James's brother John's name appears on the Altar War Memorial at this church.
I think James may have gone to Winteron Hospital because of his problems after his head injury.  I know from a family member of ours that an uncle saw his days out at this hospital suffering from shell shock and a cousin suffering from eplieptic fits was sent there but the family brought the bodies back home for burial.
None of James's family are buried in the three cemeteries mentioned above.  His mother Catherine having died earlier in 1914.


Durham Lookup Requests / St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, Stanley - Look up please
« on: Tuesday 21 October 14 11:34 BST (UK)  »

I'm looking for a look up for James Brinton who died March quarter 1919, Sedgefield (probably Winterton Hospital) in St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, Stanley, Co Durham.

James was discharged from the Northumberland Fusiliers after suffering an accidental gun shot wound to the head but died a little more than a year later.
Many thanks
