Lesbury St. Mary's Burial Register - Click for bigger imageThis entry, extracted from the Lesbury parish burial register, which included Alnmouth, refers to Sarah Richardson. Sarah was buried on the 8th January 1813 aged 74. 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 Lesbury parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
