Balmoral cemetery.
« on: September 14, 2017, 09:20:48 PM »
Does anyone know where I could get the cemetery burial records for Balmoral cemetery? I have tried The Belfast City Council cemetery people but they say that they have limited records.

Tried both those ideas but no luck. Seems PRONI have burial records 1855-1896 and Belfast city council took over in 1953. So who has the records from 1896-1953? In particular 1919 and 1923.

Thank you James. I got that book from the library last week. It only seems to cover up to 1900ish. My family died 1919 and 1923. I have visited the cemetery and unfortunately a big proportion of headstones have been knocked over so they are unreadable. Will keep looking, someone must have records.
