No Burial Record for Rose Seabourne March 1860- 16 Oct 1896
This has been a brick wall in my research of my husband's family tree for several years now. His great-grandmother Rose Seabourne/Seaborne (born Wren) died of uterine cancer aged just 35 in Marylebone Infirmary (which I think is now called St Charles Hospital) on 16th October 1896. She left a husband (Robert Seabourne) and three school-age children (Rose, Florence and WIlliam - the latter being my husband's grandfather on his mother's side). The children were sent to various institutions as boarders (William and Mabel to St Marylebone Parochial School in Southall, Florence to Sudbury Hall School, Harrow). We assume that Robert could not work and look after them, but we don't really know. He was employed as a Paint Mixer (Colourman) so wouldn't have earned much; the family moved often, perhaps avoiding the rent man!! The siblings did manage to keep in contact. Their father Robert died in 1900 and is in an unmarked grave in Finchley; Rose is not with him. So although I have the death record (parish of Westminster, St Marylebone), I have never been able to find out exactly where Rose was interred (or perhaps she was cremated?). The first page of the register appears to be missing (or at least not scanned). We had hoped to find out because my mother in law had always wanted to know where her grandmother was buried - but sadly she passed away in 2016 without knowing.
Does anyone has any idea about where to look next...? I've done all the usual sites: Ancestry, Billion Graves, Find A Grave, Free BMD, etc. Could the records have been lost? I'm stumped! I'd be grateful for any advice.
