Why is Grey Friars given as her place of death, when it is her place of burial? I have noticed this done in many entries. Even when there is no grave, only a memorial.

Thanks. I have removed it. It is the name of a religious foundation, and anyway we are not meant to include church etc names in location fields.

What are the sources for her given name being Alianora? Everywhere she is referred to as Eleanor, even throughout her biography on here. The Wikipedia article linked to does refer to her also being known as Alianore, with an e not an a. Does Richardson give Alianora as her given name?

Hi there I see Eleanor is my 14th g-grandmother. I knew I came from British aristocracy.
