Within this two acre Cemetery were buried plague victims and murder victims.

If the fates decree you're going to lose give them a damn good fight...

Hi

Having a lot of difficult finding out about deaths/burials of ancestors who died before the opening of Milltown Cemetery. What would have been the main Catholic cemetery for those born Lower Falls/Falls before Milltown? Also are the records online?

All help gratefully appreciated.

I believe that in the past it was common practice in most places, and even in Ulster and Belfast, for Catholics to be buried in Protestant cemeteries, for practical reasons, such as the availability of cemetery's and burial space for example. I believe that even today there is no proscription by the Catholic church against that practice. There were Catholic cemeteries in the Belfast area prior to Milltown. These sources might give you a bit of a start.

I suppose that it's the same everywhere, but even today it's still common practice throughout Britain in public cemeteries for burials to be separated into different areas according to religious faiths and denominations. That always strikes me as being a bit disconcerting and I can never really grasp the necessity for it nor the thinking behind it.

Religion is the worlds greatest evil and has caused more deaths murders and torture than any other known thing

and has caused separation both in life and even in death since it raised it's ugly head

Most Belfast Catholics were buried in Friar's Bush, Stranmillis. However, most could not afford headstones and are in unmarked graves. It is possible to search burials in PRONI. (Dont think there are online records).
