There's an Elizabeth Jane Hume in our transcriptions for the Beach Road Cemetery....but 'inscription obscured with lichen' I've written. Typical innit!


Warkworth Beach Road Cemetery, Monumental Inscriptions

Thanks Mike - I have looked at all the records you have on the site. There was an Elizabeth Hume of Dial Place on the 1911 census so more likely her.
This Elizabeth Smailes's youngest daughter Isabella died in Middleton St in 1908 and I always thought she would be laid to rest with her mother but cant find it....and then her eldest son William got killed in that mining accident in 1915...but this seems to be the norm in those days.

I'm sure this is posted elsewhere but can't find it.

Hi - Yes I have seen this - William was her eldest son, her daughter Isabella (born after her father had lost his life to Typhoid) died at his house aged 16 on Christmas eve 1908....so many tragedies.

I think it's the burial place of Elizabeth Smailes, William's mother, drowned in the Coquet 1900 we are searching for Janwhin. Our Beach road cemetery gravestone photographs don't include a Smailes stone.

I've caught up now

According to the Morpeth Herald, she lived in Warkworth. so she'll be in the Beach Road cemetery but without a headstone. A trip to Woodhorn by someone to check the burials!

Hi – Sorry I seem to have hijacked this thread.

I don’t know what the names of the cemeteries like Beach road are but have found that Elizabeth’s Brother, James Dodds Hume buried 4 of their 8 dead children locally – two named William Smart Hume at Chevington, and One of the two James Dodds Hume’s (junior’s) and a Sarah McGill Hume at Amble East – others were buried at Morpeth. So if any of those are a Beach road cemetery it may be relevant to the location.
Janwhin – I couldn’t get a transcription of Elizabeth’s drowning from the Morpeth Herald it was a bad link?
Thanks all. Gordon.

Beach Road cemetery is a Warkworth cemetery Gordon, a replacement for St Lawrence Churchyard which was full by the latter part of the 19th century.They were digging through multiple old graves for new burials in St Lawrence's Churchyard at the start of the 19th century so a new burial ground was past due.


Here they are in relation to each other.
St Lawrence's was built in the 12th Century, but within its footprint is a Saxon church, so there could have been burials there for 1500+ years. A lot of bodies in that small place.

Gordon, it is a bad link, but the text seemed to suggest by the mention of ..."worth" that she was of Warkworth and of course they were living there in 1891!

Hi – The site is pretty quiet at the moment so I thought I would ask a question.

William & Mary Jane Smailes had one more child (who survived) a daughter called Maggie who married a Mariner called Benjamin Rodney Howell (1903-1948)
They are listed as living 9 Blackwood Street on the 1939 census and BRH is listed as Coxswain R.A.F. Marine Craft – Master Mariner.

Mary Jane had married again (to AG Harrison) and was still living in William Smailes’s house at 8 Blackwood St with Eileen the daughter from her second marriage.
AG Harrison was with his parents on the 1939 census? and they have used her Smailes rather than Harrison surname on this gravestone? (her maiden name was Richardson)

Anyone know what Coxswain R.A.F. Marine Craft – Master Mariner was? He died shortly after the war? And I would love to know what happened to Maggie as she was not mentioned in her husbands will so assume she died before him and left no descendants from William Smailes line.
Was wondering if there was any local knowledge around.
Cheers Gordon.

The marine craft would be the RAF air/sea rescue launch based at the north side of the harbour.

The Acklington record book says for oct 21 1939 "Marine Section, Amble, F/O. Druce commanding, move en bloc to JURBY, I.O.M"

So did he (Howell) go to the IOM as well?

Gordon, it's a bit strange why Mary Jane was buried as a Smailes rather than a Harrison. She is in the death registers as Harrison and I've noticed a probate record for her. I don't know if you have it already but it states:
"Mary Jane Harrison of 8 Blackwood Street, Amble (wife of Alexander Gordon Armstrong Harrison), died 26 January 1940. Probate to Joseph Ernest Archer, solicitor and Margaret Howell (wife of Benjamin Rodney Howell)...."

Hi - yes thanks Janwin I have the record, no mention of Mr Harrison on her will so I am thinking they may have fallen out. Mr Harrisons, grandson occasionally looks at this site so he may have something to add.

I've seen " J. Robson, Alnwick" CDVs before but found one marked "J. Robson Alnwick & Amble". Not sure where that Amble studio was. Cannot find any information in the papers regarding Amble. The Alnwick studio was in Chapel Lane.

Found this one last week on Evilbay, it's a CdV rather than a postcard. Another permutation of Amble photographers, this time 'Sample & Barsted'.

The image is Amble but it took me a bit to 'get it'. how about you???

That's a great photo with all sorts of things going on. What's that bloke standing inside a shelter in the haystack doing?

My money's on Gordon Street and they're taking some hay off the dunes
