Hi, I have had a good look through my books and also on the interweb :-)
I cannot find any information on her burial. One source said that they could find no reference to her funeral or her will.
She supposedly died at her manor at Grafton but that doesn't mean to say she was buried there. Once again, another fascinating lady with so many gaps in her story.

Thank You .

I also cannot find anything as to where the Duchess or her 2nd husband (Richard Woodville 1st Earl Rivers)  are buried .

Well Richard Woodville was beheaded so there is no record of his burial site....probably flung into an unmarked grave somewhere.
I don't think he was "quartered" as he was a "gentleman" so it could have been worse.
