I was just about to respond with the same data and then noticed the burial date (11/11/1957) is before the death date (5/12/1957) so this is probably not the right one

There are certainly a lot of Ballards there, probably some of my ancestors.  (I tell friends that I spend a lot of time digging through old cemeteries.)

Looking at the scan, the 11.11 has been changed to 11.12 and the dates of burial of the earlier people in that plot start at 28.11 and 5.12 so this Ernest Wilson was buried 12.12.

Many thanks for looking Tsu and drhewitt, - much appreciated.

Tsu, - I dug out Ernest's Death Cert to re-check the date, and he definately Died on the 5th December 1957... He was lodging in a Hostel for single homeless men in Stepney at the time of his death, and so I was expecting him to have had a pauper's funeral. He had fallen on hard times... very sad:-(

Does anyone know, - is there a numbered plan of the Cemetery anywhere, showing where the plots are situated?

Cheers, Romilly.

So if he were buried December 12th that would be about right, then.

Not sure about the plan. I'm sure there must be, somewhere. I'll have a look.

There's a link here but pauper's graves weren't marked. My grandmother is buried in a pauper's grave here (in 1974) and there's no stone. If it's possible to visit it's worth it because it's quite a nice place.

Many Thanks Tsu. Yes, I wasn't expecting a marked grave, - just thought it might be possible to ascertain roughly which part of the Cemetery by the plot number. And yes, I will try to visit now that I know where he is. (I've researched all of my Father's brothers from scratch, as I had nothing to go on... My Father died when I was 5, and he was 30yrs older than my Mother, and so no one alive to ask about that side of the family).
