Hello,

I've just seen this correspondence and it is very helpful, so many thanks.  My maternal grandmother died at 77a, Highgate Hill in January, 1926, and I have been trying to discover what the property was.  I know that the Whittington Hospital is there now so I'm not surprised to discover the information about 77a which has been published in this topic.
What I need to discover now is where my grandmother was buried - Highgate Cemetery is a possibility I suppose.

Hang on half a mo' Lawrence - it ain't that simple! Most Londoners have been interred in the vast municipal cemeteries that fringe outer London. If your Grandmother was an Islington resident, she may well be buried at Islington Cemetery, here is a link:
www.islington.gov.uk/Environment/cemeteries/islington.asp
A search, based on date of death, if successful, will provide a plot number.
Finding it in the cemetery would be an expedition in itself - but be prepared for the common grave, where up to 14 (unrelated folk) can be buried. My uncle's grave, at Islington Cemetery (as an example) has 6 marker stones on it. None of which relate to him.
Hope this helps
Dave

Thanks for your reply Dave.  Believe me, everything concerning my grandmother has been a nightmare which I have battled with for years until I had a big breakthrough when the 1911 census was released a year ago.  So I'm not expecting anything to be easy!   
Indeed, I know about common graves as my father is buried in one in Alperton cemetery.
Thanks for the tip about Islington cemetery, I'll give it a whirl.  My grandmother lived in Corbyn Street, Islington, according to the death certificate,  so she might well be in that cemetery.
All the best,
Lawrence.

Hello Dave,
Bingo!  Islington Cemetery has confirmed that my grandmother is buried there - in a common grave.  So that's that problem solved.  I am most grateful for your helpful guidance.  All the best. Lawrence.

This thread is a God-Send !   ;)

I have recieved a DC today for my Great Aunt, who died in 1937 at 77a Highgate Hill.  She died following problems with a birth (to be honest, I can not understand the full extent of her Cause of death on the certificate).  She was only 22. :-[

There is a residence address given as "Pounda Street, Islington"  .. I think it's a "P" but it could be a "B" .... any suggestions please?  ???

My interest also lies with the name ... her Maiden name was WHITTINGTON ....
