(Note that the 1861 census records have been searched for the name Cook in Chesterton. We are on safe ground in saying that Elizabeth Ann Russell Cook gave the family name as Cook when she registered her daughter's birth and death, but, for reasons at which we may only guess, she gave her name as Russell in the 1861 and 1871 censuses.)

Familysearch.org has an index for Elizabeth Ann Cook (no image), showing that she was buried at Chesterton on March 12, 1871. The name of the cemetery is not shown, however her mother was shown as living on Histon Road in Chesterton and young Elizabeth Ann is probably buried in Histon Road Cemetery.
