Hi, can anyone help? I have asked before but I still can't find where my grandmother is buried. She died in shoreditch London in 1926. I have trawled the cemeteries I could find online. I found her death record. I am banging my head off a brick wall - and it hurts!!!

Hi WW,

Here comes a daft question. Do any of your Aunts or Uncles remember her funeral.

Hi there
Do you have a copy of her death cert? If not could be worth getting a copy. They have the address for place of death and the address of the informant, it might narrow your search area down to a particular place and also maybe able to find a funeral notice in the local paper and sometimes they state where burial is.

thanks Gibbo, leefer and P.Risboy for responding, in answer to your questions, All aunts and uncles are dead (all grandparents died before I was born) My sister has applied for the death cert, still waiting!! Then at least we will know what she died of as she was only 24!! My mother was 10 months old and an only child. I am waiting for 1911 census so I can see if grandma had any siblings as her maiden name was white( how common is that) and I cannot afford to trawl through all the whites on pay to view.:'(
Thanks again.

Hi WW,
What is her name(maiden name, married name), D.O.B + D.O.D last known address etc. If you give some specific details we may be able to help.

Steve.:)

Hi...had a good look and couldnt find anything like yourself...one thing to consider W-watch is looking at crematorium records in the Shoreditch area...there was a big rise in people using this rather than burial during the early twenties onwards....someone could have kept the ashes...the crematorium would defo have a record if you Gran indeed was cremated....apologies if you know for sure that she was buried...regards Lee

Hi leefer, thanks for the reply. What is W-watch? I tried to google it but couldn't find any thing that might help in the listed sites!!
WW:'(
That made me chuckle.......W,Watch is short for your name!..my point was maybe looking at the local crematorium records rather than burial records,alot of people who arn in the census are racked down by burial records....but from the twenties onwards more people got cremated than they did buried...regards to you and hope you get a breakthrough..Lee.
