Hawksworth Irving

Hi Guys,

I would be so grateful for some help please. I'm trying to find out more about what happened to the body of someone who is potentially my grandfather on my mum's side. His name is Hawksworth Irving, born in 1899 in Sunderland, County Durham, and died in 1943 in Essex. He killed himself by hanging, I don't know if that's noteworthy or not. I am trying to find out if he has a grave anywhere, or if he was maybe cremated. I can't seem to find anything for him in either Essex or Sunderland. I know his parents were dead before he died, so they weren't around to claim the body. His brother claimed the money left after Hawksworth's death.

Any thoughts on where I can look for information on burials or cremations would be great please. I've looked in all the obvious places and I've scanned hundreds of graveyard listings for both Essex and Sunderland.

Thanks in advance!
