If you can give us the name of the deceased we may be able to help a bit quicker by going through the burial records.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

Mary Ann Cook, aged 44, wife of Thomas Cook, buried at HRC on 5th September 1859. Address given as Coronation Square. Map attached, not sure of its date.

EDIT. Just realised that this map is from 1881, as it has already been posted on the YARDS thread.

I've had a look at the 1871 census for South Lynn (it's easier to read than 1861's), but there's no mention of any specific buildings in Coronation Square.

I have spent sometime on using "buildings" as a search reference for HRC and plenty of of deaths were recorded in 7 different sets of buildings.
Nar Buildings, Victoria Buildings, Smith's Buildings, Brewery Buildings, and Daisleys Buildings, Chapel Buildings Hardings Buildings.
None match with what is on the cert.

Thank you for confirming Mary Ann's burial, do you have any information that the service took place in one of the chapels in the cemetery?
All Saints Church or St Margarets etc

Kind Regards Geoff

Hi Geoff
When I had a cert. I couldn't read properly I got back to where it came from and asked them to tell me the word I couldn't unravel.

I'm afraid there's no record in the burial register from St. Margaret's.

Hi
I couldn't find one either or at All Saints. I didn't look at St. Nicholas as I thought it was a bit far from Coronation Square.
Could it be at St John's.

In the 1861 census there is a family called Manhood living on Fleet Terrace (next street on the census is Coronation Square.) Head of the family is John and is a green grocer.
Maybe that's the owner of the building?

Almshouse lane

Postby Tresagreen » 04 Apr 2021, 09:16

Found this old map, don't know if it is already on here. It shows Almshouse lane (right at the bottom) which later became Tennyson Avenue.

I think that is a good candidate for what is on the cert.Two sets of Almshouses Buildings on that road right next to the old Union workhouse and hospital.
If it is the place it is a great bit of slouthing Ms Marple.

Bit of confusion EWW, don't mean this is the location of the 'Buildings' , ( Manhoods Coronation Sq.) but it is a connection. One of John Manhoods daughters,Mary, married a chap called Fountain Dickerson and they lived at Mill House, in Almshouse Lane. Sorry should have posted it under old maps .
