Danny,

Looks like your Greatgrandparents, Richard & Ellen rest together with a child, Margaret who died at the age of 1 and a half in 1925.

Looks like Richard body was brought back to Aberdeenshire, where I presume there was an RAF camp and then back to Belfast for burial.

Baby Margaret died at 51 Lisburn Rd, 2 Hunter St. 51 Lisburn Rd was the original Belfastís City Hospital and I think that there was a Childrenís T.B. Ward in Hunter St.

Danny,

Apologies, can you go back a few posts to where I made comment of the location of the death of Baby Margaret. On the Burial details it says 51 Lisburn Rd & 2 Hunter St.
51 Lisburn is indeed the location for the City Hospital but prior to it being a Hospital is was a Workhouse and did indeed have a childrenís TB ward .
However, with a little bit of digging I can inform you that your Great Grandparents Richard & Ellen weíre actually married on 21st October 1917 in St Anneís Cathedral Belfast and your Great Great Grandfathers names are Thomas George Mitchell and James McGivern.

You will see on the Marriage Certificate that Ellen and her parents lived at 2 Hunter Street.

Also note that Thomas was a Ward Master which probably meant that he worked in the Workhouse.

Hunter Street no longer exists.

I Cant put into words how Thankful I am. I knew Hudson street has gone, as I came over a few years ago. You have been such a great help, and have made my Day with this information, refreshed my need to continue to the Family tree.

You have been a brilliant help, i think what my problem is I'm jumping between Families and names, i need to just study one side of family at a time.
I was talking to family member earlier, and her Nan was Sarah Hunter, and she married my nan (Annie) Brother Jo Middleton. So i need to regroup all the information and stick to one family name at a time.
Once again Thank you for all your work, it has help me a great deal.
