Hi Margaret. Sure you will get lots of help on here.

The nearest cemetary is in Jarrow itself and the local Newspaper is the Shields Gazette.

That's a start for you. The experts will help you later I'm sure of that.

Thanks for your reply, but the 14 pounds they charge for a search of grave is too expensive for me, I already paid 7 to get certificate.

Have you tried the S.Shields Library that Just Passing suggested? They used to have all sorts of genealogy stuff, but don't know if they have moved some of it.?? It can be an expensive thing if you don't do your own searching.

Just read the post and wonder if they are buried at Heworth? I can recall my late Nan saying some of our family buried at Heworth Church (by the Metro interchange)maybe worth checking out...cheers Cait
