City Road Transcription Query


Looking for Harry Batson burial at City Road and I've found it under Harriet Batson. Could someone check the original and whether there has been an error in transcription? If not, could a note be put on it to say it to say the child was actually Harry not Harriet?

Grave 13399, Section Y, Consecrated. 'Harriet' Batson buried 9th May 1891. Child aged 10 weeks. Died at 18 Duke Street.

Many thanks

Hi Claire,

It does say Harriet. I will send you a copy.

I will also add a note on the burial entry.

Hi Elaine,

Thank you for checking and for sending the image. Appreciate the note being added to the record that the baby was really a boy called Harry.
