Rosehill is part of the Dignity Group...FYI, they have not been researcher-friendly in the past.  This topic was discussed at considerable length on this List within the last year.
Good luck,

      Derek, I saw Elizabeth on the Illinois Death Index.  Do you have her Death Certificate?

      I could not find it on the Family Search website and got to wondering, so I checked the Cook County Coroner's Inquest Record Index, 1872-1911 on the Illinois Secretary of State's website, and there was a Coroner's Inquest into her death.

      You can order this record from the Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD).  IRAD does not accept email requests, so call or write:

      Illinois Regional Archives Depository
      Ronald Williams Library
      Northeastern Illinois University
      5500 N. St. Louis Avenue
      Chicago, IL  60625-4699

      Telephone:  773-442-4506

      Be sure to include the following information in your request:

      Name of deceased:  SWAHLSTEDT, ELIZABETH
      Volume:  59
      Page:  216
      Date filed:  4-27-1903
      Date of death:  4-26-1903

      There is a minimum $1.00 charge which, I believe, includes up to 5 photocopied pages.  Most inquest records are 2 pages.  Do not include payment with your request; they will bill you for the amount you owe.  Also be sure to include a self-addressed postage paid envelope with your request.  IRAD research can take anywhere from 2 to 10 weeks, if they are backlogged.

      Good luck,

        I am hoping someone can help me in my search for the burial of my great aunt ELIZABETH SWAHLSTEDT, who died on 26 April 1903, aged 59 years,
        at 710 Racine Ave Chicago.
        Any help in identifying where/when she was buried or pointing me in the diection of a likely burial place would be much appreciated.

        I am also trying to find out what happened to her husband, JOHN A SWAHLSTEDT a tailor, after her death as I have not been able to find him on any subsequent census. On the 1900 census he is listed as SWALSTEDT A. J. born c1845 in Sweden.

        Thanks in anticipation.

        Derek Bradshaw.
