Pontefract All Saints Parish Records
« on: Saturday 18 September 21 14:02 BST (UK) »
Looking for a burial in 1837

There's a John Mckenzie/Mackenzie died 1837, I can find limited details from BMD on both Ancestry and Find My Past, but no entry on GRO (I've chased them up)

I'm trying to ascertain age at death to see if this John Mckenzie could be one of my missing ancestors

I've looked through images of burials for Pontefract St Giles/St Marys, but for 1837 i can't find any records for Pontefract All Saints, there don't seem to be any available.

Anyone know of an alternative source that might give me a lead ?

The death was registered as Pontefract registration district so could be in any of these places

Snap, just found the same entry!
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Hi Daisy, I'm hoping that's not the one, I was rather hoping to find someone in the 60's to 80's

Hi Rosie

I'm hoping that he turns out to be the Grandfather of Mary

I already have Mary's father, John McKenzie born 1786 Newfoundland, died 1878 Pontefract.

I also think I have Mary's Grandmother, also Mary, born circa 1765 (not sure where yet) died 1849 Pontefract
