Do you have existing profiles for Cecily and her husband? Seeing more of their background might help us to find ideas of where to look for the burial. Do you know where they married, if they had children and whether their main residence was in Londonderry or England?
Bear in mind that parish records around 1600 are "sketchy" at best. There may be no burial record for her anywhere, or it may not be accessible online.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Ridgeway,_1st_Earl_of_Londonderry  This is information on her husband.  I was thinking maybe they would be buried in the same place?  But it does not mention her in that section.  

https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/England_Church_Records#Burials  this is interesting:  "Beginning in 1598, ministers were required to send copies of their registers to an archdeacon or bishop annually. These copies are referred to as bishops’ transcripts, or sometimes archdeacon transcripts. As a result, two copies of many parish registers exist from 1598 to about the mid-1800s."   So where was she living when she died?  

It is possible the trees on the internet guessed based on where she died or where her husband was buried...
