When and where did Ann die? Where and when was born? Was she living at the time of the 1911 census and of yes where?

The reason for the questions is that there seem to be a number of Ann Hodgsons around the area. She may have been buried where she lived or could have been taken elsewhere.

this might be the death:

Deaths Dec 1911 
Hodgson Ann 72 Lancaster 8e / 966  and the National burial index has:

however the only entry in National burial index 1911 is in feb - Annie Hodgson aged 2 days! in Dalton - one of yours?

You need to identify the correct death and get a copy of the certificate.

That will allow you to see where she died, and what her home address was (if different). Once you know those you can check the relevant parish church records if they have a graveyard that was open at the time, or those of any other denomination if appropriate. If you still don't find her then you look at cemeteries or other parishes in the area, working outwards from the home address.

You should also look at discovering where her husband/parents/other family members were buried to see if she is with them.

I think she might have died in 1914 as there is a death registered Ulverston but that one is an Ann E Hodgson. There is a tree on Ancestry for the death in Lancaster with the Ann married to John Hodgson.

Regarding burial I would try both Dalton and Barrow cemeteries and as she was born in Kirby Ireleth she could be buried there. However I think you need to establish when and where she died.

That could tie in with an Anne Hodgson buried at Silverdale, Lancaster. She was of Bradshawgate(?) Silverdale

The 1881 census has the Ann who died Silverdale living with her husband John at Bradshaw Gate so not your Ann
