A footnote written in 1851 by the Rev. Frederick Hockin on page 50 of the Burials Register laments "that more than 40 deaths this year from smallpox, mostly young children, and not a single person to whom the disease proved fatal had been vaccinated".

Another footnote written in 1863 by the Rev. Frederick Hockin on page 167 of the Burials Register notes "three other deaths, making a total of 16, took place in this parish in the month of January, the increase mainly attributed to measles and whooping cough".

The inside front cover of the Burials Register that commenced on 13 November 1884 contains the following note written by the Rev. Frederick Hockin:
"The Act of Parliament 43 & 44 Vic C 41 (the Act for the intrusion of schismatical ministrations into Churchyards) gives Dissenters superior powers to those possessed by the Clergy in three important particulars:
    I      Free choice of the bodies to be buried
    II     Free choice of the person to officiate
    III    Free choice of the service to be used
The Church is tied down by the law in all these respects"
