    This is a "snip" from the burial register for Tower Hamlets Cemetery Registers. Can anyone read the address given before it was crossed out and Guy's Hospital written in it's place?

    If anyone want's to have a look at the original on "A", the burial was 4 October 1897.

    Trying to work out if she could be mine.

    23 Pardoner Street?
    Pardoner street is in the London borough of Southwark....does that work for you ?

    I will have to see if I can find her husband John at that address. In 1901 he was at 19 Falstaff Yard, St George the Martyr, Southwark - and so far, haven't found him after that

    Don't want to buy a certificate if I can help it, so was thinking of other ways to see if it was my Isabella who was born in 1858. Am beginning to wonder if the marriage I found is even her :(

    Ooh, there was a John Smith at 23 Pardoner Street, Bermondsey, Southwark in 1899, so looks promising. Will look for other years.

    Thanks @Archie's Mum

    I think you have cracked it! Listed there in 1894 and it says late 23 Henry Street, which was where John and Isabella were in the 1891 census.

    I wonder if that means they changed the name of the street?

    I just need to convince myself that the marriage I have is correct :eek:

    Just found it, and I found on another forum about Bermondsey that Henry Street became Pardoner Street :)

    Pardoner Street, from a character in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Others in the area from Dickens novels. You learn something every day. ;)

    A very useful website for checking London street name-changes is this one ;)
