Bywell St. Andrew's Burial Register - Click for bigger imageThis entry, extracted from the Bywell St. Andrew parish burial register, which included Riding Mill, refers to William Henderson. William was buried on the 26th November 1875 aged 88 years. When a person is buried an entry is made in the burial register. Of particular interest are the burial registers of the period 1798-1812. These are known as Bishop Barrington registers. Shute Barrington, Bishop of Durham, ordered that additional information should be recorded, for example, a person's age and occupation when they died. Burial registers of Bywell St. Andrew parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
