Orderic Vitalis records that "Gulberto" died "XVIII Kal Sep" [year not specified, but from the context soon after the donation to Ouche Saint-Evroul which he made] and was buried at Ouche. In another passage, Orderic Vitalis records the death "XIX Kal Sep" of "cognatus eiusdem [referring to William I King of England] Guilbertus Alfagiensis filius Ricardi de Huglevilla", during the time when King William was unwell, and his burial "in ecclesia Sanctĉ Mariĉ ubi sex monachos ex Uticensi cœnobio constituerat".
