« on: April 10, 2019, 04:24:03 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I am trying to find the death of alice campbell nee verdoes born in 1881 in south africa and married to Walter robert colquhoun campbell.

Walter R C campbell died in 1937 but his wife was not buried with him. Dundonald cemetary. Last known address 54 Glenbank place for Walter.

Any help is greatly appreciated.  :)

The 1919 death matches the occupation of upholsterer here (note wife's birthplace):
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Antrim/Clifton/Groomsport_Street/145506/

Did you notice the death registrations for their 2 newborn children on the same page? BTW, the death notice for Alice says 'interment in Carnmoney'.

Thank you everyone.

I found her . Yes that is her in 1919. She died along with her twins sadly,

And the census record has walker as one of the children but it is actually walter. When you look at the written you can tell they transcribed it wrong. It is definitely my grandfather.

The only thing i could not find is where Alice was buried.
