Does anyone know, - is there a numbered plan of the Cemetery anywhere, showing where the plots are situated?
Yes, the plans of City & Tower Hamlets Cemetery (also known as Bow Cemetery) are at LMA. They are not online.

Here’s a link to the catalogue listing for them (scroll down to pages 16-17)

Please note, the link given above in reply #16 is not for this cemetery, but for the City of London Cemetery, which is an entirely different burial ground, at Ilford.

Thanks for explaining that Bookbox. (I was puzzling over that map showing Ilford).

Cheers, Romilly.

I have found an entry on Ancestry Cemetery Rgeisters  for Tower Hamlets for Ellen Cowell, Abode: 17 York Street Stepney, Buried August 16 1866. Age 19 yrs. I cannot see any other info on this record such as a reference to burial number etc. Am I missing something here . Everyone seems to talk about a reference number but I can't see anything but the above. Can someone help please?

You're not missing anything that is online. The other data referred to above, regarding plot numbers etc., can only be accessed at LMA. It is not online.

Please see reply #18 above, which includes a link to the relevant pages of the LMA catalogue showing the material available at the archive.
