Workhouse deaths in 1890's

Started by: agertsch (165) 

If someone was in a Workhouse at the time of their death in about 1898, would they have been buried in a certain location owned by the workhouse? Her husband in the Ince Cemetery but I can not find his first wife and the mother of his children anywhere.

Any help is appreciated~ Arlene
