Sunderland Holy Trinity burials – 1842

573 burials at Sunderland Holy Trinity in 1842. Unusual for this period, there are lots of useful details such as parent or spouse names, occupation, and death date. It reads more like a cemetery register than a church burial register. For example:

  • 15 Feb 1842 Jane Ann Thompson, of Barrack Street, age: 1 year 6 months, died 11 Feb 1842, daughter of Nathan Thompson (pilot)
  • 17 Nov 1842 Thomas Liddle, of Nesham Square, age: 57, died 14 Nov 1842, mariner, accidently killed at South Shields
  • 1 Dec 1842 Sarah Cawdell, of Houghton-le-Spring, age: 75, died 26 Nov 1842, widow of James Cawdell (comedian)

We are working on filling the gaps in our Sunderland Holy Trinity burials (1822-29, 1838-42).
