Mostly folk were buried in Churchyards , adjacent to the church they attended , or the Parish they lived in. Suggest you check the Parish Records for those areas.
Even after the Public Cemetery was opened many continued to have their family buried in the local churchyrad ( i.e. until the Churchyard became full )

A new church (Christchurch) in a new parish was consecrated in 1829 and money was raised for the burial ground in 1828 (A History of West Bromwich, F.W.Hackwood). That would have lasted for a while for those in that parish
