    • Although there is a burial of a Charles GOTHAM in q1 1839, there is no entry in the death registration index under this name. Looking at the Stafford Reg District GRO index for Charles deaths that quarter finds the following:
      GRO ref: Gethin, Charles q1 1839 Stafford RD 17 104
      The same Charles or a co-incidence?
      Looking for this same deaths in the local BMD index finds the following, showing he was the same age as the one buried:
      Local BMD (Staffs index for 1821): GETHIN, Charles aged 21 sub-district: Stafford, registers at: Newcastle-Under-Lyme, ref: STD/01/435

      With the match on age as well it seems too much to be co-incidence and I think the burial and death registration are for the same person. The question then is was it for a Gotham or a Gethin?
      Since this Charles seems to have died before his wife remarried in 1846 and there is no other death registration found for him points to Gotham. In addition, since he died in hospital I guess a member of staff would have registered the death, but the family would have been at the burial, so the name is more likely to be correct in the burial register. 
    Buried 23 Mar 1839  St. Mary’s Church, Stafford, Staffordshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • I can't find another Charles who could have been buried at this time, plus his wife appears to have remarried in 1846, so it does appear to be the burial of this Charles.
      The age given in the burial register is 21; this Charles would have been 22.
      His abode is given as 'From the Infirmary, Stafford'
