The above notice seems to tie everything together nicely in that Margaret Henry is presumably the Margaret Walker who married Joseph Henry in 1902 and had their son Norman Stewart Henry in 1907, while George Walker is presumably the one who married Magdalen Williams in 1894 ...

... and had a daughter Mary Walker in 1899 ...

... who went on to marry William Millington in 1925.

All of which ties in with Forth River Gardens in the 1901 and 1911 censuses:

And Jane Caldwell is presumably the Jane Stewart Walker who married John A. Caldwell in 1902 ...

The only bit I can't understand is the reference to son-in-law George Henry - I wonder if that is just a mistake, a break down in communication?

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

Thanks you SO much CmG
This is brilliant

Yes I agree this is all the correct family as I got as far as finding Norman S Henry in census but couldnt get past that. I registered with GRONI last night but havent figured out how `i use it yet. - will try tonight when I am not in work

I was fairly sure Norman S Henry died in around the end in 1980s  as he wrote to my mother after many years with some family information. (My mother was daughter of William Millington and and Mary Magdalen Walker living in Forth River Grdns until she was about 10 or 12). We appear to have lost that letter so I will follow up with his family  (I think you are correct on this)

Thanks again!

I think the 1943 marriage to Ida Craig just has to be him, it took place in Malone Presbyterian Church and although it doesn't give his full address (just 'Belfast'), it records him under the full name of 'Norman Stewart Henry' (a clerk) and his father as Joseph Henry deceased, it would be an absolutely incredible co-incidence if not him.

Anyhow, fingers crossed for a positive outcome from following up the Duncan and Sheila Scarlett lead.

Thanks again. Yes Id say so as if he was married before 1942, he surely would have mentioned his wife in the death notice in 1942
Have just sent an e mail off to Mr Scarlett - so fingers crossed!!

All I have to crack now, is how to remember where I parked the car in the supermarket car park.  ;)
