Page Barrow's notebook of deaths and marriages (plus the occasional birth) has been located. It has been transcribed and is now on the Bishop Burton web site. It covers a period from 1908 to Page's death in 1927 at the age of 79. Page worked as a gardener in the village but was known as the village historian. The notebook contains references to over 350 families and individuals, most of whom are connected with Bishop Burton.
