James James 6507 doesn't say where he fought whereas 9003 says Balkans.  It looks like that is more likely...

Hi could you look to see if there is anything relating to the burial of Joseph Mc Cloud who died in October 1920 . He was my maternal grandmother's brother and was shot on the Newtownards Road going home from work during some "troubles". if I could locate his grave perhaps I might find my Great grandfather . thanks in anticipation.

At a brief glance I found a Joseph McCloud who was born in October 1898 in Bridgetown, Glasgow when his father Joseph was 30 and his mother Alice (nee Connery) was 28.  He had one brother and 4 sisters.  He died on 20th October 1920 in Belfast aged 22. His sister Tresse was born 1900 and Martha 8th February 1909.  Alice died in 1918 aged 49 in Belfast.  His grandparents were Joseph McCloud 1845-1900 and Theresa Dempsey 1847-1906.

I still can't find any death for Thomas Johnston who was wounded in June 1915 in Gallipoli but apparently made it home and possibly went off again to India in 1921 but there the trail goes cold.  I wonder if he returned to die in Belfast.

Also still can't find out why Robert Prescott McClelland was in Belfast County Jail for 7 years sometime between 1912 - 1925.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Good luck, it certainly isn't easy but you feel wonderful when you actually find someone!

@Valkerr I know this is an old forum, but I came across it when doing a bit of idle browsing, trying to find images of Ligoniel in the 1960s. Seems highly likely that the Edward Noble in question is my Great Grandad. I can remember as a very young child hearing the story of someone who had died after a fall in the shipyards. It's one of those memories that resurfaces from time to time, I heard it maybe 45 years ago. I was never quite sure of the context, so it was quite strange to see your post and have it all tie up!

Could you please check if there are any records for the death of Edward Noble? He died on either the 12th or 13th of October 1906, I have conflicting reports... I'm trying to find any information about his parents.

10 October 1906 , Belfast, Northern Ireland
A FALL OF FORTY FEET
Last evening a Ligoniel man named Edward Noble, aged about forty years, and employed at Messrs. Workman, Clark, & Co.'s, fell from some staging on one of the vessels in the course of construction, a distance of about forty feet. He was removed to the Royal Victoria Hospital, where it was found he was suffering from a severe scalp wound and concussion, and also severe shock. He lies in a precarious condition.
