Billy would have been born around 1947 I don't know the address. We served our time in mackies together and still keep in touch.

I worked in Mackies in 1964 as a machinist.  I ran a Milwaukee vertical milling machine.
It's not enough that we do our best;
sometimes we have to do what's required.

Hi Ericjeff, I was sent your post because the word lived was used and I am Livey on the Forum. I do not know any of the names you were asking about and I assume it was Moltke Street you were enquiring about. I came from Soudan Street and also attended Tin Top, I suggest that if you scroll far enough back through the pages you will find chatter about Tinny. Anyway welcome to the Forum and I hope you find something that you relate to.

Hi Jimmy, I went there a bit before you around 1949, we communicated on TinTop way back on the Forum. How we used to steal St Simons milk as we were passing the school on our way to tinny. Might be worth looking back probably around page 20.

Thank you Livey.

Bread Basket very kindly posted the death notice of Gertrude, Gertie Hanna, of Coolfin Street, died in 1975. What cemetery is she likely to have been buried in? She was Presbyterian, if that makes a difference. I searched 'find a grave' but no sign of her in City Cemetery.

Thanking you,

My guess would be Roselawn as that is the main cemetery for Belfast since the troubles especially, if she died in 1975.
