72  Craig, Andrew C.
75  Craig, John

Sorry, although it probably isn't unexpected by you, or unknown to you, but it appears that at least one of them has passed, and given his age and date of death, the others probably have as well.
Dundonald Cemetery Belfast.
Grave section and number   C1 418
Andrew Cunningham Craig,... 72 Methuen Street,... age 81
Date of death   17 August 1965
There are four earlier family burials in that grave, an adult female and three young children.
