Lena Henderson - 49 Copperfield St Belfast

Aussie relative looking to make contact with someone who may have known Lena Henderson who lived at 49 Copperfield Street, Belfast. 

Lena was listed in the Belfast Directory for many years at this same address until 1976 and would have been around 70 years of age by then.

Appreciate any information.

Hiya aussiepossum,

Welcome to Belfast Forum.

The answer to your question Christopher is yes.

I have sent emails to the editor of the Belfast Telegraph and Eddie McIlwaine without any success, so I thought I would try this forum.

Hiya Aussiepossum,

Have you any details about Lena that might be helpful in getting more details about her? Do you have any letters from her that might mention names of people in Belfast? I wonder if it would be an idea for me to post names of other people who lived in the street at the same time as Lena. Even the names of next door neighbours might help to jog memories.

Christopher I don't have any correspondence from Lena or a photo of her, only a photo of her husband Norman taken in 1943.

From my research her husband's name was Norman Victor Henderson and was awarded the Military Medal in 1940 for Dunkirk (rank Sergeant).  He was in the 2nd Battalion, Royal Ulster Rifles, and from the information probably joined the army in the early 1920's.   

You can list the names of the people in the street if you think that might help.

My family are the Moores at 28 in census list. I will ask for you as they were there for around 30 years up to 1978.

Hello Aussie relative,
I am Lena Henderson's granddaughter living in Canada. My Grandmother died in 1995. She moved from Copperfield street many years before then. Do you still wish to make contact with her relatives?

I would love to see the photo of her husband from 1943, my grandad, Norman Victor.

If that is the case about 3 postings, then just post another two here and tell me about the weather in Canada.
