I had a quick gander at some of the coastal parishes to see what else was wrecked in April 1799. Embleton buried five mariners from the wreck of the Charming Harriet near Craster and two from the wreck of the Auspicious near Newton.

Lesbury buried, over several months, nine, from the Thetis, and one from the Swan.

Warkworth buried an unknown, initials G F from an April 5 wreck.

Woodhorn buried seven, all of Cresswell, drowned on the 5th. The Newcastle Courant mentions the George and Mary of Sunderland wrecked on Cresswell Sands and all lost apart from the master.
