Boldon baptisms 1813-1846, burials 1813-1851
At Boldon St. Nicholas in South Shields district:
816 baptisms covering 1813-1846
683 burials covering 1813-1851
In case you missed our last Boldon update (March 2011), here is an interesting site on the history of Boldon, with photographs:

Ponteland baptisms & burials 1813-1844, marriages 1813-1 July 1837
At Ponteland St. Mary the Virgin in the Castle Ward district of Northumberland, across the River Tyne from Ryton and just northwest of Newcastle, we present the following records from the Bishop’s Transcript:
1,281 baptisms covering 1813-1844
860 burials covering 1813-1844
215 marriages covering 1813 to 1 July 1837 when civil registration began
Ponteland is not in the IGI after 1812 and, as far as we know, this is the first time that post-1812 Ponteland baptisms appear indexed and online.

Gateshead East Cemetery burials 1897-1900
7,487 burials at Gateshead East Cemetery, covering 1897-1900.
Besides many street addresses in Gateshead, residences mentioned include Bensham, Felling, Felling Gate, High Teams, Low Fell, Mount Pleasant, New Gateshead, Newcastle, Salt Meadows, Teams, and Tyne Main.
Because these are municipal cemetery records, not church burial records, they present many more genealogically useful details. 99% of these records give either an occupation, a parent or husband’s name, or information about how the person died.

Coming Soon:
Tynemouth Christ Church baptisms 1813-1817
Denton baptisms & burials 1765-1812
Staindrop baptisms & burials 1765-1797
South Shields baptisms & burials 1763-1797
Newcastle All Saints marriages 1822-1824
