We study partial information, possibly non-Markovian, singular stochastic control of Itô--Lévy processes and obtain general maximum principles. The results are used to find connections between singular stochastic control, reflected BSDEs and optimal stopping in the partial information case. As an application we give an explicit solution to a class of optimal stopping problems with finite horizon and partial information.
