Looking for a Burial, Durham/Newcastle
« on: Saturday 04 January 20 12:12 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I was wondering if someone could help me find a burial. A family member of mine has terminal cancer and wants to try and find a grave of one of our relatives.

It is for John Thomas McCormack (sometimes spelt 'McCormick'). He was born 1874 in Gateshead, Durham.

He married Rose Ann Mclaughlin in 1898.

He died January 1914 (I think) in Gateshead. It's the only record I find for a John T McCormick dying, so I think this is him.

In 1911, his address was 26 Holly St Felling, in Heworth, Durham.

Thank you so much

If no one beats me to it I will see if and when (depending on next work rota hours & opening hours) I can next fit in a trip to the archives for you to try to find him.  I will do my best.   :)

The death is a plain John too.

The scan is very poor, so this is the best I can make of his death announcement in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle, 12th March 1914.  Words I am slightly unsure of are in brackets.

McCormack (Thomas), 12, Sykes Buildings on the 10th (illegible) the dearly beloved husband of Rose Ann McCormack and dearly beloved son of Margaret and (the late) James McCormack and (nephew) of Mary and the (late) William McLaughlin. To be interred at Heworth Saturday the 14th at 2.30.  All friends kindly invited. On whose soul sweet Jesus have mercy. Rest in Peace.

Heworth Cemetery wasn't opened until 1941, so my guess would be that he was buried at St Mary's Heworth.

 I'm not sure how comprehensive this list of Memorials at St Maryís Heworth is. Certainly a huge number of the memorials have been photographed. There is no listing for McCormack, so possibly no memorial stone (if this is where he is buried  :-\ )
