Hi Carrie-A

few things first....there is no carlingford rd but there is carlingford st.
also in 1976 it was vicerage st and in 1992 it was vicarage st....maybe a typo?
1976
7 Dromore St.  Smyth, John...Van Salesman
1 Vigerage St.  Beattie
83 Carlingford St.   Clarke R.C. .Painter and Decorator

1992
7 Dromore St. Smyth. John
1 Vicarage St. McCool Martha
83 Carlingford St. Clarke. Richard.C

that is exactly how they appear in the directories....hope it helps

I know a family called Beattie lived in 1 Vicarage Street in the Early 1950s...I lived in Vicarage Street at that time.

thanks for trying to locate Nellie Erdis. I think Barbour St was bombed . She died in early 1970's but I have reached a brickwall.

Hi Hilary

Have you tried looking at the Belfast Tel or News Letter obituaries.  It might be quite a trawl but if it's the only option at the minute it might be worth the effort.  The newpaper archives are in Belfast Central Library (Royal Avenue?).  Don't go in the main door though, you get access up the side street where the Belfast Telegraph is on the corner. Good Luck with it  O0
