Ann DANIELS (née CARTER) died aged 47 on 27 Sep 1849 at Chase, Southgate of Cholera and consecutive fever. There is a burial on Ancestry for DANIELS (no first name or age given) of Southgate at All Saints, Edmonton on 28 Sep 1849.

What do people think? Is this my Ann DANIELS?

I'd say so.

It's definitely Southgate and a day after.

As she died of cholera, they wouldn't hang about and get her underground ASAP.

Included in the "Report on the Mortality of Cholera in England, 1848-49" (page 438):

"137; 3 Edmonton; the disease was at it's height between August 25 and September 27 (1849). The Chase, Southgate, furnished 18 victims. In the workhouse 8 more deaths took place. The epidemic finally disappeared October 3rd when a labourer, 58, died at the workhouse".

Re the question of - is it her? What I've done in the past is check the deaths in FreeBMD against the burials. In this case, if you look in FreeBMD for deaths in Edmonton Registration District in 1849, there are just two, viz:
Surname First name(s) Age District Vol Page
Deaths Sep 1849 (>99%)
DANIELS Richard Edmonton 3 162
Deaths Dec 1849 (>99%)
DANIELS Ann Edmonton 3 101

If Ann died on on 27 Sep 1849, then the registration spilled over into the Q4 (1st October onwards) - not that that matters. The point is that there are two candidates for that September burial - Richard and Ann.

Fortunately, Ancestry also has this:
Name: Richard Daniels
Age: 7
Record Type: Burial
Birth Date: abt 1842
Death Date: abt 1849
Burial Date: 30 Aug 1849
Burial Place: All Saints, Edmonton, Enfield, England
Register Type: Parish Register

That's a death in Q3 so accounts for Richard - the one that is left must be Ann.

Now, it's important to note that there might be problems with this logic - if the church is near the edge of the Registration District, the burial might be from the adjacent Reg District. Burials could also be from a distance or after delays. But, coupled with the fact that the match is indeed likely, this gives you some confidence that - oddities aside - this is the right story.

Many thanks - I'm fairly certain now that this is Ann Daniels.

Using the GRO Death Index for Ann Daniels of December Quarter 1849 and GRO Edmonton 3.101, it states that Ann was aged 47 at date of death registration.
Supports all known information - must be her.
