Burial for Ann Taylor
« on: Thursday 30 September 21 09:26 BST (UK) »
Hi newbie here, I'm looking for the burial of Ann Taylor who died on the 6th March 1875, aged 28/29yrs at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford. I can't locate her burial in her hometown of Witney which is where I thought she'd be, so was wondering if she was possibly buried in the surrounding towns of the Radcliffe Infirmary. If anyone could help with possible burial sites, I'd be truly grateful. Many Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Rootschat! Do you have any other information about her? The only death I could find for around that time on FreeBMD was for Headington, Oxford.
Regards.

Headington was the registration district for the Radcliffe but it is approx 13 miles from Headington to Witney so more likely she was buried at Headington. 

I think the Radcliffe had its own burial ground at that time but I'm not 100% sure

The OFHS have transcripts for the Radcliffe Infirmary but it looks like they only go up to 1855.

It might be worth getting in touch with OFHS to see if they know if burials continued after 1855.


Also, there was a death announcement for Ann/e but no mention of the funeral.

A report in the Church Times says the burial ground was closed by Order- in Council in 1855. It's seems the ground was never deconsecrated. Between 1921-1957 the burial ground was built over by an extension to the eye hospital.
In 2011 the report says around 700 sets of human remains were to be exhumed and reburied.

Thanks tazzie for explaining the absence of burial records after 1855.

I have a copy of the CD mentioned by cuffie81.  The preamble to the Radcliffe transcripts includes the following:

"A single entry for 1771 is recorded in the burial register; otherwise the register dates from 1815 to 1855.

The death registers date from 1845 and appear to be complete except for the period 1874-8"


Steffyj, my copy of the CD isn't the most recent version.  It's possible that the missing death records for 1875 have been found since the Health Authority archives were transferred to the Oxfordshire History Centre (about 10 years ago?).  If I were you, I'd check with Oxfordshire Family History Society as they did the original transcribing; their email is help[AT]ofhs.org.uk
