Except that it showed the volume number as 22, which covered part of
Yorkshire. This wouldn't fit with Newcastle-under-Lyme, which came under
vol. 17, or Newcastle in Emlyn and Newcastle upon Tyne (vols. 26 and 25
respectively). Probably a mistranscription by whoever submitted it to
FreeBMD.

Hope this helps,
