Not sure of which Parish

Postby Katykat » Thu Mar 28, 2019 6:06 pm

Name: Jane Reeves
Event Type: Burial
Burial Date: 11 Feb 1844

Is anyone able to determine from the above where this burial took place?

Thank you Mumbles. This isn’t my relative. She was born between 1806-1812 and died before 1855 ( her widower remarried in 1855) so that would make her less than 48 when she died. Also, she lived in Beckenham, Bromley.

Also, the GRO is a December registration, unlikely for a February interment.

It looks very much as though you've got this info from familysearch web site.

(RG numbers are non-conformist records)

I just typed RG4/4367 in google, click on first entry bmd registers..... next page typed in Jane Reeves

Jane Reeves 1844 Burial St James Clerkenwell, London RG4/4367

Click on RG4/4367 and you get this

RG4 4367 Register of Burials At the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel In the Parish of St James Clerkenwell, Spa Fields, London From 1838 To 1849.

Found this on GRO Index

I Googled the code number and there were similar numbers as non-conformist entries. So I found this

Jane Reeves 1844 Burial St James Clerkenwell, London RG4/4367
on https://bmdregisters.co.uk/search/advan ... d&a=Search


I think it is probably this death entry (though it does not have an -s)

Hello folks, sorry I’ve taken so long to reply. I’ve been doing a bit of sleuthing and realised that I had the wrong Jane Reeves. I knew she married Richard Edward Reeves, her maiden name was Hooker. I knew she had a son, William Albert Reeves ( my ancester) in 1841. Then I found that he was born in the Wandsworth and Clapham Union workhouse. The whole family were there for the 1841 census. Then I found this -
REEVES, JANE 37
GRO Reference: 1845 M Quarter in WANDSWORTH AND CLAPHAM UNION Volume 04 Page 423

So I’m sure that this is her. Seems like the family were still there in 1845. By 1851, they were in their own home and in 1855, Richard married again.
Thanks for your help
