JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Locating Burial Records, Saevitz or Sayevitch of Stepney, 1934 #unitedkingdom


My father-in-law's father, Nathan Saevitz/Sayevitch, died at St George in
the East Hospital, Raine St, in January 1934. I haven't been able to find
any information on his burial. His wife, Rebecca (Bessie) nee Troshansky
died in 1960 and is buried at Enfield. His eldest son (my father-in-law,
Herschel/Harry Sayevitch, is buried at East Ham.

I understand that there was some stigma attached to the Raine St hospital
because it was run by the Stepney Poor Law Union as part of the workhouse
until 1930 when the LCC took it over. I know that some former workhouse
hospitals had arrangements with cemeteries. Does anyone know whether there
was a particular cemetery at which people who died at St George Hospital
were buried?

Any advice would be appreciated.
