Burial Records and Death Certs
I have a Death Cert for a 5 year old who would have been my Uncle he died in 1921. His place of deathy was down as Bekesbourne isolation hospital nr Canterbury. I  have tried everywhere to find his place of Burial but cant. My cousin did a bit of digging and found out that the people that signed the cert were the medical officers for Bridge Union Workhouse anyone any ideas or advice on where I can go from here pls??

Hello & welcome.
Many Workhouses were being used as infirmaries pre NHS & doesn't necessarily mean he was an inmate there.
However some young children from poor families were often buried with others in unmarked graves.
You would need to check with local cemeteries near to the Hospital & where the family were living at the time.
