    What date was this? If you mean the Saffron Walden Union Workhouse, that is next to Radwinter Road Hospital, so assume you mean the hospital not the workhouse. If it was after 1857 it could be in the Radwinter Road cemetery which is just opposite. If you look at this website http://www.saffronwaldenhistory.org.uk under Resources, there is a database of the burials at the cemetery, see if you can find it there. There may no longer be a headstone though, it just directs you to the area of the cemetery where burials took place. Presumably you have not found her in the Clavering burial registe
