Looks like they have all been put into a mass grave THEY WERE ALL BEING BURIED ON THE SAME DAY AS THEY HAVE DIED.. sad looking at the burial register...There are no entries before Rachel's with any remarks on the column and you can see the spread through East Hetton and Quarrington Hill Ch Rachael Fallas of Cassop Moor aged 57 buried 10th June Ch Benjamin Fallas of Cassop Moor aged 60 buried 11th June Ch Thomas Fallas of Cassop Moor aged 3 buried 11th June Ch Joseph Fallas of Cassop Moor aged 18 buried 13th June Ch Leonard Mordew of West Hetton aged 8 buried 14th June Ch William Andrew of Quarrington Hill aged 2 3/4 buried 14th June Ch Margaret Ogilvie of Quarrington Hill aged 22 buried 15th June Ch Jane Scott of Quarrington Hill aged 34 buried 16th June I was a little emotional yesterday to say the least...

Angela I have the same black hole for around there.. I checked St Andrew's Church at Tudhoe Grange for my Grandmothers baptism and the death of her sister but they are not at Tudhoe either.. I dont know if you live near to Spennymoor // Tudhoe at all but when I went for a look for Holy Innocents I went and had a little wander around the churchyard at Tudhoe Grange too and was talking to the man who looked after the churchyard and he has the burial books.. So it could be that they are there there are just no books been handed in to the records office... Might be worth noting for future reference.. Take all the details for the burials with you and he will look through the entries and even if there is no headstone will take you to the plot number.. Maureen

Thank you very much for that Maureen. One of the Knott offspring had Harrison as a middle name, which makes the witnesses names interesting! All the best Angela
