St Mary's Heworth Burials 1895
« on: Thursday 07 February 19 14:25 GMT (UK) »
My grandfathers first wife died tragically after being run over by a locomotive at Felling Colliery on Saturday 27 October 1895. Her inquest took place on the Monday and my parish extract says she was buried at St Marys Heworth that day. I am trying to find where her grave was.. Quite possible she had no headstone in view of the speed of internment, but where do I start? I have tried burial inscription site but there is no Margaret Smith b 1871 d 27 10 1895 to be found. Would there still exist a master directory of burial plots?

I would start by contacting the church in question.  As you have her name and date of death they should be able to advise further.

Website for church

https://revkatejamie.wixsite.com/stmarysheworth/about-us

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the Church Warden details.

However it does say this on the website:-

Only current burial records are held at the church, historic records are lodged with the Durham County Archives. 

I would therefore suggest that you contact Durham Archives.

Durham Archives contact page:-

Girl Guide, if you return to this thread before the moderators see it, you need to remove the churchwarden's name and contact details.

A link to the church website would be fine, but as they don't have the records it probably wouldn't help.

Thanks Carol for your message.  Adjustment has been made. 

I get a little baffled by this ruling of not providing direct contact details.  The website is in the public domain and therefore all information on it is available for all to see.
