Thanks Mike from Leicester. A bit of a puzzle then as her son didn't bury or cremate her - he was at sea. Perhaps The Leicester Mental Hospital had their own arrangements as she certainly died there (I have their issued certificate). Thanks for the look-up though. Don't know where to look next. ??? She did have some family in Bedford but I don't suppose they buried her.

hi i know mental hospitals had their own graveyards but if it this is not the case with the towers and her family didnt bury her would a communal burial be a possibility?

This is now a bit strange. If a common grave would there be a list?
Did the Leics Mental Health have a communal grave plot for that time?
Thanks everyone for trying to solve this...where to look next?????
