Reuben Whitehouse death 1901

I am trying to find the location of Reuben Whitehouse's grave, I know he was buried in Beighton, but not sure how to find his grave, he died in January 1901 by a tragic accident.
All I do know is that he was burial was recorded in Beighton, can anyonw help me find out where to look for his grave, we have been to Mary The Virgin graveyard I Beighton but couldn't see anything, I have emailed the vicar there but wasn't replied to.

A Suggestion.

Where are other family members buried who died about the same time?

Did he live in Beighton?

Deaths Mar 1901
Whitehouse Reuben 30 Worksop 7b 23

If he died the result of an accident there would have to have been an inquest.
Which would certainly have been reported in the paper.

Is this his father?

Hi Jane,

Reuben Whitehouse, aged 30yrs, was buried 20 Jan 1901 at Beighton.
At the side of the burial entry someone has written, "Killed by a
fall from a roof". The entry in the burial book is number 749.
No grave number given.

This burial would be in the churchyard as the cemetery was opened at a later date. I understand from postings on the facebook page, Beighton community forum the vicar is very elusive. The only churchyard plan I have seen for the churchyard gives sections but no individual grave reference, so without a stone it would be difficult to pinpoint the grave.
