It could be that it is the right burial but her age is wrong, of course.

Have you seen the PR marriage entry? If so, are there any details from that, such as her being a minor or not, witnesses' names, parish of residence?

Edit - oh wait, you said the burial is Sarah Poles, but shouldn't we be looking for a burial of a Sarah Burgan?

You could order the death certificate to check if the age on there is the same and to confirm it is your Sarah? Sarah Burgon Sep 1838 Rotherham XXII 275.

AHH! I wasn't thinking straight - of course, she reached the era of civil registration.

She lost so many children I got sidelined with them.

Thank you, Kate!

The GRO Index shows that Sarah was 47 when she died, so born c. 1791.
I have ordered a PDF of the certificate.

BURGON, SARAH 47
GRO Reference: 1838 S Quarter in ROTHERHAM Volume 22 Page 275

Very sad to see that so many of her children died around the same time.
