Ian, we have now met! My third cousin had a flying visit to London from New Jersey and we met up with him and his wife. Great stuff thanks to this forum.

Thanks Elsabels. Sad story and I wonder how that came about. If I remember correctly, Sarah died of cancer in a sanatorium in Hampstead, my great grandmother Louisa Duncan, Sarah’s sister was present at death.

This is a different Sarah Taylor.
Sarah Himalaya Taylor died in Islington district in June qtr 1904 and we have her burial, 5th May.

Sarah Taylor admitted to Goodmayes (the West Ham Borough Asylum), 13.8.04, did not die 12.1.04
It says she was discharged - Not Improved.
Which usually means that we are going to find a transfer to another institution on the same day
Sure enough, in those lunacy admissions is Sarah Taylor, admitted 12 January 1904, asylum Brighton. Discharged - not improved - 28 Dec 1911

And again, Sarah Taylor, asylum W Sussex, admitted 28 Dec 1911.
Discharged - not improved - 29 Aug 1913.
Heaven knows where she went next, those admission records go only up to 1912.

Thank you Ian for that clarification. It helps that ''our Sarah Duncan" was not a lunacy patient in addition to her illness that ended her life too soon.
