Bell/Bunting
« on: July 06, 2019, 07:03:09 PM »
Hi. Have received a lot of help recently from forum members regarding Bell/Lavery tree. Following the Bell tree I would be very grateful for information regarding my great grandfathers death Abraham Bell died 28.12.1934 resulting from an accident in Donegall Quay also his wife Charlotte Bell (nee Bunting) who I believe died 1925. Cannot see records of their burial in Belfast City Cementary so assume they are buried in Glenavy. Have details of their marriage and names of their children
Thanks

his merry voice no more we'll hear
No Laughing face we'll see
Dear Lord, how could we give him up,
to anyone but thee.
Deeply regretted by his sorrowing Daughter and Son-in-Law.

Also his Grandchildren.

Thank you so much Sam. Wasn't sure if he passed at home or at the Quay. Would I seem bold if I was to ask if there are any details regarding his wife death. I know I have little information for anyone to go on.

Thank you so much. It's great being able to put this information together. I know there are no records for burials at Glenavy Church but at least I know their final resting place. One again thank you.

No need to apologise. Thank you both for helping. I was using 1925 as that was the date that came up in the matches on my.heritage. I believe she was alive in 1914 as I have seen images of a telegram Charlotte and Abraham received regarding the death of their son William James in France. (Thank goodness I have others to keep me on the right path lol)

The death informant was son-in-law Joseph Mussen.

Who I believe was married to Eliza Jane. Once again thanks for keeping me on the right track and helping me to dot the i and cross the t on this branch of the tree. Hoping to start my fathers side of the tree soon. Now there's a challenge.
