Thatís good and all coming together.

Well done, GG. Excellent find.
Margaret Halliday married Robert Bainbridge just after the 1871 census.

Then a marriage indexed at Darlington
June 1874 Darlington 10a 76
James Bainbridge
+
Elizabeth Halliday Dial

Could that  be her? I can't see an Elizabeth Halliday Dial otherwise. There are two others with the same GRO ref, but local indexes tell us those two married each other.
After that I've lost the bride!

RG 11/ 4997/ 84/57

at Smyrna Home, Borough Road Bishopwearmouth

Elizabeth Bainbridge, inmate, mar, 30, domestic servant, Durham, Berry Edge

Edit  Smyrna Chapel, in Borough Road was Presbyterian p. 31 here

That's looking good Jen.

I think Peter may have to consider obtaining the 1874 marriage certificate.  I can't seem to find any full record of it online anywhere.

That would tell him whom Elizabeth has put down for her father if there is one at all.

I know from birth and death certificates that the family moved to Sunnyside some time during the early to mid 1850s as they had two daughters baptised at Shotley Bridge (1854 and 1855).

Are you speaking of Margaret and Mary Ann Dial?

I have taken a look at Margaret's baptism, and she wasn't baptised at Shotley Bridge. Her Baptism, which is from the Primitive Methodist records, took place somewhere within the Shotley Bridge Primitive Methodist Circuit, which covered a pretty wide area.

At the time of the baptism the family were living at Sunnyside, Crook, which was some 12 miles south of Shotley Bridge, and only a short distance from Willington.

Just coming back to this (I'm a pedant  ::) ) on FindMyPast the baptism is said to be at Shotley Bridge.

However the same record on Durham Records Online indicates it took place within the Crook Primitive Methodist Circuit.

Since the residence was Sunnyside I venture to suggest that, for some reason, the indexing on FindMyPast is incorrect. DRO are far more likely to be correct.

There is a Sarah on the 1881 census living at 3, Louisa Street, Darlington, Durham.  Have a look at the people in the household and see what you think.

Registration district   Darlington
Archive reference   RG11
Piece number   4884
Folio   119
Page   20

Following that family through to 1891 at the same address

RG 12 / 4040/ 108/20

Robert Bainbridge, head, m, 67, railway engine porter, Durham Shield Row
Margaret do, wife, m, 63, do Jarrow
Elizabeth do, daur, m, 41, do Consett,
Christopher do, son, 29, telegraph clerk, do Darlington

Is 'daughter' Elizabeth born Consett actually daughter-in law Elizabeth? (Berry Edge was effectively part of Consett.)

Might this be her burial, in 1894, aged 43?
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSJW-C99Z-3?i=155&cat=996888

The burial carried out by an E C McCullock, who can be found in Darlington in 1901 as a Methodist local preacher

Also, with same address, Luck's Terrace, the burial of a Christopher Bainbridge aged 31in 1892 (see 1891 census in previous posting)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSJW-C9M5-X?i=122&cat=996888

And an 1893 burial of a James Bainbridge aged 43 of Luck's Square
