... He's buried with the family in Belfast City Cemetery in a Crawford Vault I believe.  I have'nt been able to see it with all the repair works etc 


Grave H481 contains Magills, Paisleys and a Jeffers, but no Crawfords, the grave owner shown for the earliest grave occupant (Mary Walker Paisley in 1871) is James Magill:

It seems plot H481 passed from Henry Crawford to James Magill on 8 August 1869.

When I first visited the City Cemetery to look for his grave I was told by the staff that it was a vault and unfortunately inside the fencing for the repair work.  Hopefully they have finished now and I can have another go.

Can you advise how to attach images please?

Yes it seems James Paisley Esq. , Rebecca's father, was Principal of the King Street Academy in Belfast.  I know that he lived at Clonvara, Jordanstown near the station.  The house was only demolished in recent years to be replaced by a gated housing development in the old grounds.

A correction.  It seems Clonvara belonged to James Magill and old James Paisley was living there when he died.
