London and Middlesex / Re: Kensington burial 1941
« on: Sunday 12 May 13 11:57 BST (UK)  »
Hi

In Kensington you have Kensal Green Cemetery (distinct from St Mary's RC cemetery) left to check. It is the oldest and likely to be the largest. It also had one of the oldest London crematoriums established in 1939 - separate registers have to be searched for cremations, though a cremation is far less likely if the family were Catholic.

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Re: St. Mary Le Savoy
« on: Sunday 05 May 13 13:47 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Westminster Archives hold registers for St Mary's Lutheran Church of the Savoy (marriages 1694-1771) By their names the couple don't seem likely to be of German Lutheran origin.

Westminster Archives don't hold the Queen's Chapel of the Savoy (dedicated to St John the Baptist) which was is a Royal Chapel - the Savoy Chapel.

Both St Mary le Strand (Anglican) and the Lutheran Church used the Savoy to worship at while they were without their own buildings but the registers of all three would be separate.

If the marriage went ahead and marriages didn't always follow on after a licence was purchased or at the church stated, the most likely register of the three to contain the entry would be St Mary Le Strand. St Mary Le Strand registers are held at Westminster Archives and eventually all those parish registers will be on Findmypast but they may not have got as far back as 1698 yet?

They also hold the West Middlesex Family History Society marriage index

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Re: Burrell
« on: Monday 22 April 13 20:00 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Emily Lily Burrell's birth registration was in 1883 in Plomesgate registration district. An Emily L Burrell marriage was registered in Plomesgate registration district in 1911. On the 1901 census Emily was still in Aldeburgh living with her parents. A free search of the 1911 census indicates an Emily Lily Burrell was still in Aldeburgh. Her father George appears to be an older brother to who looks to be Hester's mother Rachel Burrell.

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Re: Burrell

Hi

If she was illegitimate her father is unlikely to have the surname Burrell. She would have given that information for propriety's sake on her marriage.
Annette7 in her post gave a possible for her birth registration.

I'm sure it is her on the 1901 census but the census enumerator seems to have written Burren not Burrell. It could just be two small ls but it looks more like an n. An error by the census enumerator or her employer, or her employer's handwriting when interpreted by the enumerator.

Hi

Wandsworth Archives will hold copies of local newspapers

http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/info/200062/libraries/293/library_services/9

Unless your mum's grandmother's sister was someone of prominence in the community it is unlikely a local London newspaper would have an obituary. The population of London is just to large, with many people dying on a daily basis. The family may however have had a death notice inserted in the local paper.

Local London newspapers as opposed to national newspapers printed in London are far less likely as yet to be online on the Internet.
