Will be very rife, due to winter months. I often have ancestors who died in the last few days of one year and not buried until the first week or so of the following year. One ancestor died in late December 1896 and was buried on the 4th January 1897. She was from near Woodstock in Oxfordshire originally but moved to near Rochford in Essex via London in 1866.

My great grandfather died on 30 December 1958 aged 57. He was buried 3rd January 1959. The Southend Standard has an obituary for him on 1st January 1959 listing date of funeral and time.
