Sarah Scarrott, Update.

After a short wait and checking my inbox every two minutes, Sarah’s death certificate arrived.
In truth I wasn’t convinced it was going to be the right one, so I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be correct.
I can happily now tell you, how and when, Sarah’s journey through life ended.

Sarah Pearce Nee Scarrott, died on August 5th, 1865, when she was only 47 years old/young.
Sarah died at West Wellow, Hampshire, England.
Her cause of death was, Phthisic, 1 year.
Phthisic is a progressive wasting disease.
Mary Ann Street was present at her death and registered it on the 8th August 1865.


It’s a nice feeling to know, Sarah’s story is nearly complete, now to try to hunt down her burial.
I believe she may be buried at St. Margaret’s, East Wellow.
My husband and I took a little trip to St. Margaret’s, to locate family graves, unfortunately just as we arrived, the heavens opened and stopped play.
I have however emailed, the Vicar, Chris Pettet, and I’m awaiting a reply.
I will update this post, if and when I manage to find Sarah’s resting place. Fingers crossed.🤞

Have a good day and I hope to see you back here on Friday, for the next instalment of my 52 week challenge.
