Percy Cook - D.O.B 1895

Could anyone who has worked in Hellingly help me to trace details of an uncle of mine who was a patient. His name was Percy Cook d.o.b 1895 and it is believed that his death was between 1953 - 1955. I am unsure of the year that he would have been placed at Hellingly.

I would also like to know where he was buried and are there burial grounds within Hellingly institution, or does anyone know which record offices I would have to contact to obtain the information.

My thanks to anyone who can help in this matter.
Thank you

  1. There are no burial grounds on the site that I know of, its possible that he was buried at Hellingly church not fair from the Primary school in Hellingly. Sorry this is all I know, hope it helps in some way!
