Hi Allymac. I take it that you have access to grave records. I have often wondered where my grandfather (my mother's dad) is buried. His name was David Clark and I can remember my mum telling me that he was buried near Lambeg. I never knew him, he was either from Connaught St, Donegall Avenue, or Pembroke Street which are all in Belfast. Hope you can help

I can only get info from the Belfast City Council site.They have a grave search facility but it only shows some of the main graveyards such as the City,Dundonald and Roselawn.Unfortunately,I'm having trouble posting links....but try the Council site....it's really helpful for research.Best of luck.

Dear Skinder,
I do not know if you will read this post as I am following up on your message dated 2012.
I found your message while also looking into finding out more about John Toner’s shooting story. It seems that a lot was written about it in the newspapers at the time.
Did you also manage to find out more about Matilda?
Reading your message, I guess that your mum was Henrietta born in 1908. I have a copy of her and her sibblings’ application for admission into a Home for Children in Dublin after Matilda died.
I would be interested to know more about the descendants of Henrietta. I am linked to your aunt Margaret.
If you ever read this message, I will be happy to share all the information I possess.
Best regards from France
