HI Molly,

I don't know if this wiil help you -




I looked on ancestry to see if there was a burial record for her, but couldn't find one.

Find My Past has burial records too, but I don't have a sub for them.

Researching : George, Toy, Uren - BC/ Cornwall, Barrows, Blair, Bowyer, Day, Freeth, Green -East End of London

Hi Molly,
I checked the burials at FindmyPast but no luck finding Elizabeth

Hopefully you'll be able to find her burial.

Researching: ROWBOTTOM (Dby & Chs); PRITCHARD (Sal & Den); HARRIS (Bdf & Chs); GORTON (Lan & Chs) just to mention a few!

Hi Molly,

I'm afraid that you will probably have a task on your hands. I have had a look on Find-A-Grave.com and can find nothing there either.

London burials tend to be particularly illusive. I would start with the major Victorian cemeteries to the west of London but any London cemetery may be the final resting place - some were quite exclusive and so if Elizabeth's family were poor it would rule them out. I have many ancestors currently lost in London cemeteries and I suspect that most of them will remain lost.

Another possibility is that she was buried outside of London if she and her family came from elsewhere - not particularly common for this to happen but also worth keeping in mind.

Good luck.

Thank you Mike, Julieb and bcbrit for your replies, being poor she may well have disappeared forever, I live in hope that one day her burial may turn up.
Best wishes,

If the person you are looking for was poor, she may well have been buried in a pauper's grave which means there may well be no record kept of her burial. The first one I discovered was my great-aunt who had died in the workhouse. I made enquiries about relocating her in a family grave but this could not be done as it would have meant disturbing all the other bodies in the grave. Sad, isn't it?
