Morpeth St. Mary's Burial Register - Click for bigger imageThis entry, which has been extracted from the Morpeth parish burial register, refers to Emily Wilding Davison. Emily was buried on the 15th June 1913 aged 38 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 Morpeth parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
