Possibly Lost At Sea
« on: Thursday 29 June 17 22:14 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to track down a death between 1802-1807.

The Whitby PRs 1600-1837 does not have the person listed.
The National Burial (first edition) does not have the person listed.

So I was wondering if they person was lost at sea as it has (Sailor} listed on his marriage in 1802 in Whitby.

Are there records of "lost at sea" ... would they be listed as burials ...

Any help appreciated.

If the body was unrecovered there would be no burial record.
It would have been reported on in the local press which may be an avenue to pursue.
