Help to trace burial spot

Have your say

I am hoping that there will be someone out there who could possibly help.

I’m searching for my maternal grandparents unmarked grave, which I know is in West Herrington St Cuthberts/St Aidans graveyard.

In my search I have contacted the Vicar of St Aidan’s Parish/St Oswald’s, Shiney Row and the Reverend of Newbottle St Matthew’s. I have also contacted the once caretaker of St Aidan’s , prior to its demolition, the County Register Office at Durham, The County Records Office at Durham and Sunderland City Council. All to no avail.

Surely, someone somewhere will have information of burial plots.

If anyone has any information which could possibly help in my search, could they please email

Here’s hoping.
