Hello everybody.
We are new here and just want to introduce ourselves: a Danish-Russian couple, living in London, interested in Danes and Russians in the UK. Quite a few russian ballet artists lived and died and were buried in England. We are trying to visit their graves.

So here comes our first question:

anybody can help us to find where princess Serafina Astafieva (1876-13.9.1934) was buried?

thanx in advance

The following book probably won't have Serafina Astafieva listed but it might give you a lead on how to go about finding her grave. It is available on Amazon UK.

Who's Buried Where in England by Douglas Greenwood
"The final resting places of illustrious men and women exercise a mysterious attraction to the traveller, and in this book the burial sites of over 350 prominent figures in English history are listed with a wealth of interesting detail."
Publisher: Constable; 3Rev Ed edition (12 Jul 1999)

Welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers, julia&keld. We're happy to have you with us and we wish you good luck on your quest to find graves. This forum gets little traffic since it's for welcoming new members; you might want to post your question somewhere else, perhaps Everything Else Ballet.
