Place of burial[edit]

I removed this mess:

[This is actually a college which was known as St. Mary's of the New Work, or Newarke, to distinguish it from the older college of St. Mary de Castro inside the borough.[see-http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=66575 ]

Having done some research it does seem as though there was no Newark Abbey. What there was, was a college (populated by priests), and a church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary which was apparently designed as a mausoleum for the House of Lancaster (see [1]), within a designated religious district called the Newarke, whose etymology I've been unable to determine, though "New Work" seems plausible. I haven't cited any of this within the article because it doesn't confirm that Constance was buried there. Hairy Dude (talk) 14:20, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
