Bishopwearmouth Cemetery burials 1900-1909

17,416 burials at Bishopwearmouth Cemetery in Bishopwearmouth, Sunderland district, from where we last left off in mid-May 1900, to the end of 1909. Abodes mentioned, besides street addresses in Bishopwearmouth, included Ballast Hills, Deptford, Fulwell, Grangetown, Monkwearmouth, Newcastle, South Hylton, South Shields, Southwick, and Wallsend.

Because these are cemetery records rather than church burials, there is usually either an occupation, parent, or spouse listed in the record, and sometimes the cause of death. Here are some samples:

  • 17 May 1900 William Elliott, of [blank abode], age: 33, waterman, drowned in the Wear
