Which burial ground is likely for a death registered in Battersea, London? #unitedkingdom

You were very lucky.  The liberal, Reform and Sephardi have their own burial grounds or specific sections of others, including areas within the cemeteries owned by local authorities.  Also many who are not orthodox use cremation which may be anywhere or use the same rose bush or whatever place may be deemed to be most suitable for the remaining (living) mourners.

British death certificates do not state where burial took place so the certificate from GRO wouldn't help. I looked on the United Synagogue Find a Grave site. Lewis Bowman was buried in East Ham cemetery

Hi Lesley,

My first port of call would be the United Synagogues Find a grave page: https://www.theus.org.uk/category/find-grave
Just type in first name, surname and year. If you do this then it returns the following information.

Cemetery Full Name Last Name Date of Burial Section Row Plot #
East Ham LEWIS BOWMAN 25/06/1958 F 23 1527

They have the opening times for all their cemeteries and maps.  Google Maps have a "Street View" around a part of the cemetery, including section F.

My grandfather, Lewis Bowman, originally from Poland, died in London in 1958. I already have the information that his death was registered at Battersea in the April-May-June quarter, and there is a volume (5c) and page number (91). But I don't know how to find out more from this information. I have looked at the UK government site for ordering certificates (www.gro.gov.uk) but their available death listings don't include 1958. I don't even know how to find out which Jewish cemetery he is likely to have been buried in, although my grandmother, Rebecca Bowman, was buried at Waltham Abbey Cemetery (I have a photo of her gravestone which someone found for me in an online listing) so it is possible he was there too, but how do I find out? Any search I've done has come back with no results. NB they were married at Philpot Street Synagogue in London, if that gives any clues.

I'm probably missing something very obvious. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
