I'm looking for the death of George and the death of his unknown 2nd spouse.

George is listed as married not widower but where is his spouse and who is she?

Civil parish: Cartworth
Ecclesiastical parish: Holmfirth
Town: Holmfirth
County/Island: Yorkshire
Country: England
Registration district: Huddersfield
Sub-registration district: Honley
Address: Holmfirth, Cartworth
MORTON, George Head Married M 45 1806 Overlooker of Woollen Factory Kirkburton Yorkshire
MORTON, Ann Daughter Unmarried F 22 1829 Kirkburton Yorkshire
MORTON, Wright Son M 0 (1 WKS) 1851 Kirkburton Yorkshire
Not Sally because I can find no marriage that fits.

Deaths Jun 1851 ??
Morton Sally Huddersfield 22 22[35] ?

This is George's first marriage:

groom's name: George Morton
groom's birth date:
groom's birthplace:
groom's age:
bride's name: Charlotte Barrowclough
bride's birth date:
bride's birthplace:
bride's age:
marriage date: 11 Feb 1827
marriage place: Kirkburton, York, England

No sign of Charlotte with George and daughter Ann in 1841 so is this Charlotte's death?

Deaths Sep 1839
Morton Charlotte Huddersfield 22 196

Or this one?

Deaths Dec 1850
MORTON Charlotte Huddersfield 22 233

If Wright is 1 week old then Charlotte was not his mother with death registered the previous year.
Something does not add up.

Births Mar 1850
Morton Wright Huddersfield 22 311

Such a huge gap would normally mean a 2nd spouse.
