I have a couple of ancestors who died at Greet House in the 1930s and both were buried in their home parishes.

I wonder why if she was from Hucknall, she ended up at Greet House. It was no longer a workhouse by that time, and while Southwell was not that far away I would think that there were other institutions closer to home. I wonder if there was a more local family tie.

It would be worth checking the burial registers for both Southwell Minster as well as Holy Trinity Church in Southwell. I think the Minster parish registers are filmed at the Notts Archives, but for Holy Trinity last I checked the registers for this period are still at the church.
