Catholic burial in Westminster area 1871
« on: Tuesday 17 April 18 12:57 BST (UK) »
I've tried googling this but can't discover where a male, John Williams, a catholic, is likely to have been buried in 1871. He died in the Westminster, London area. He had been ill for sometime and although didn't die in the workhouse was probably a pauper or at least borderline.

Were there specific burial grounds for Catholics at this time and in this area?

Thanks in advance for any information

The major cemeteries had areas for catholic and other non-conformist religions. For a death in Westminster I would try Kensal Green as being the most likely..

There is a comprehensive guide to burials in the London area here:

Catholic Registers are on page 2 of that topic (post #14).

If he was a resident of the City of Westminster and in reduced circumstances, he may have been buried at Hanwell or possibly St Mary's Catholic cemetery which is next to Kensal Green.
