Replaced the burial index for Stanhope St. Thomas the Apostle from 1595 to the end of 1770, so those 4,798 burials are now immediately available. Nearly 300 of these burials list one or two witnesses to the death (or burial), so be sure to try the new Search For Witnesses (in the Parish Record Options box) with Search In set to Burials – Weardale to see if your relative turns up. For example:
- 29 Dec 1678 Robert Chapman, of Frosterley, Witnesses: Anthony Chapman, Mary Walton
We also located 5 burials that were not in the index and added them.
