1912 Ulster covenant. Only one Joseph Reeves listed.
https://apps.proni.gov.uk/ulstercovenant/search.aspx

Reeves Joseph, 6 Little Henry Street, Division Belfast East, District Dock.

He's the only person listed for that address.

It's listed in the 1912 street directory as Henry Street Little,... the occupant of number 8 in the directory is 6. Orr, Miss Eliza, spinner.

In 1910 it's vacant,... in 1918,... 6 to 22. Demolished.

The information on the original memorial was obviously very detailed, might any documentary records of that have survived in an archive of the sculptor's documents, or of the shipyard owner who had the memorial created. ?

Indeed, it is very detailed, although a few errors - the photo you posted is very early and at least 14 further names were subsequently added to the bottom of the central panel.  I do not think the sculptor or the stonemason who engraved the names would have any additional details and, from what I understand, the Workman Clark records were not retained when H&W bought the company's assets.

A lot has already been researched, but not being able to find information about the missing three men is annoying.

Not directly related to this topic, but it is WW1 Belfast serviceman related, and it will probably be of interest to you folks,... and there is a current aspect to this topic, which you can read about if you wish to on this thread and post,...
