Ligoniel Burials

Where do you all think people living and working in the mills in Ligoniel in the 1880s and 90s would have been buried??

Try Umgall cemetery, Umgall Road .. which is off the Lylehill Road, Legoniel
Good luck !

I would imagine that because a lot of these people had originated from up the country that  they would have been buried in a family plot back home where they came from, this still happens today in Belfast with country people. (Just a suggestion).
Oh for all our yesterdays.

They were originally from Killyleagh, and I doubt if they could have afforded to transport the deceased from Ligoniel to Killyleagh - I am also certain that there will not be any headstone.  I have contacted Antrim County Council who administer Umgall cemetary in the hope that they have burial records.  Pardon the pun, but I will leave no stone unturned.  Cheers, Rosemary

Rosemary
There's also an old cemetery  called 'Carmavy' which is on the Carmavy Road off Seven Mile Straight. This is close to Ligoniel. I think Antrim Borough Council are responsible for its upkeep.

Thanks again breenbox.  I will keep it in mind. Antrim Council have passed my enquiry on to the appropriate department, so when I hear from them I will mention the other cemetary.  ::)
