John Bell died on prison hulk 'Captivity' - June 1803

Hi All,

I've tried to find a record of death other than the ships register but without success.

Does anyone know if the body would have been returned home to Spitalfields - returned to shore (the hulk 'Captivity' was moored of Portsmouth I believe at this time) and buried there or perhaps just chucked over the side?

Any advice gratefully received,
