Benjamin died in Poplar at 251 East India Dock Road on 25 May 1925. Although I have traced his probate records and have his death certificate, I cannot find out where he was buried. Any thoughts?

If he passed away in Poplar then I would look at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park records which are held at the LMA, as that would be the local cemetery.

You say you've traced his probate records. Did you get a copy of his will? Wills sometimes include instructions about burial (or cremation).

If his burial record can't be found online, possible locations may include
City of London Cemetery, Manor Park
East London Cemetery, Plaistow
or even Brookwood Cemetery down in Surrey.

The executrix may have been living in Ickenham. Her residence may have influenced the place of burial.
