Little Chelsea Burial Records
« on: Thursday 01 March 18 14:24 GMT (UK) »

I am trying to find the burial record for my ancestor James Joshua Hardy who died on 20 November 1843.

His last known residence and place of death was Odell's Place in Little Chelsea, which in the present day would be somewhere on the south side of Fulham Road, Chelsea between Limerston Street and Park Walk.

His widow remarried 9 days later back in her home village of Sandhurst, Kent so the burial arrangements would have been quick.

With regard to nearby churches, I'm aware of the nearby Manningham Park Chapel, which has since been demolished and replaced with St Andrews, in Park Walk but it is unclear if it had a burial.

Can anyone please confirm which burial grounds Little Chelsea residents would have been buried in around this time, and if possible whether the records still exist?
