I can tell you that she is not buried at Greenbank Cemetery as I have records for that one.

There are quite a number of places that she could have been buried at.  Have you obtained her death certificate to see exactly where she died and her address details?

Have you tried to find any death announcement in the local paper which would have been the Bristol Evening Post in the 1970's.  You will probably have to visit the Central Library for that.

Contact details below

Telephone: 0117 9037250

Email: bristol.library.service@bristol.gov.uk       Ask if they have copies of the Bristol Evening Post for 1970/1971.

Below is a list of cemeteries etc from the Bristol City Council website:-
