WW1 soldier Hugh Potter.
« on: June 27, 2019, 05:14:30 PM »
HUGH POTTER died at 108 Woodstock Road on 2 July 1918 after service with 6 Inniskilling Dragoons. The Potter family were Congregational. Hugh had at least 6 siblings - Sarah, William, Mary Jane, Matilda,Elizabeth and Margaret. His burial place was not recorded as a War Grave, probably because he died post-discharge.

Searches of Belfast City records and Carnmoney have produced no results.

Anyone out there have any thoughts as to where Hugh might be buried ?

Confirmed by the following Belfast Telegraph 'in memoriam' notice of 2 July 1919:



Hugh's sister Margaret was also buried there in 1921, so likely a family grave:
