For the newspapers, try contacting Lambeth Archives, which offers a paid
research service at about one-third of the cost of the British Library's
Newspaper Search Service. Lambeth has the South London Press and other
relevant papers on microfilm. They also have the burial registers and some
administrative records for West Norwood. If they can't help with your
specific query about the headstone, they'll direct you elsewhere. There's a
search Service Request Form on their website.

I am searching for a newspaper which would have in it the death
notices for the following persons:-

Mary Jane Knox died 29 January 1935, and buried in West Norwood
Cemetery, London, she died in Camberwell.

Elsie Mary Smith (nee Knox) died Country Hospital, Orpington, 16
February 1943, buried West Norwood Cemetery, London.

Is there a newspaper site I can go into for a search of family
notices where I can access these deaths? Would there be notices in
the newspapers for ordinary folk - Mary Jane Knox's husband was a
bank manager but died 1 October 1918, he is buried in the same cemetery.

Also is the cemetery still in existence, and if so is there a person
that I can be in touch with that would go to the cemetery and take
photos of the grave if there is a headstone? How do I find out if
there is a headstone?
