Hi I need some help!

I am trying to find out more about a Thomas Calvert. I know he died in 1884 in the house of recovery, in north Leeds. However I cannot not find any reference to where he was buried. it appears that he was not buried in the local graveyards or municipal cemetery. At the time of his death he had been working as a prison officer at Armley Jail, but he contracted Scarlet Fever and died in the House of recovery. Where can I find out more about this place and does anyone have any ideas as how to find his burial? His family came from Wakefield, but I cannot find him there either.

Thanks

Francis Calvert.
