Napier- Chadolly Street, Belfast
« on: July 21, 2020, 08:01:39 AM »
Hi, I am trying to trace the resting places of Jemima and Samuel Napier, formerly of 66 Chadolly Street. Both were born around 1883-85.

I have also seen an address listed as ďUnion InfyĒ, 80 Convention Street, in 1929. What could this have been?

Yes, this is what I had found as well in relation to Convention St- very, very sad.
Iím assuming that number 80 is a standard house in the street so was curious about the term ďUnion InfyĒ. Possibly died at home?

Yes, number 80 was a residential house.  there are some newspaper cuttings from  1936 & 1943 with reference to a car for sale in 36 and the death of the occupant of number 80 in 1943 but surname Napier does not appear.



See below some info which will assist with your query on Union Infy

I think you will find that, the Union Infirmary, was a hospital attached to the Union workhouse.
It's now the site of the City Hospital.

Forgot to say,  I canít find anything except the death of the twins and the death of baby Jemima in 1906.

Can you confirm that Samuel and Jemima stayed in the Belfast area after the death of the twins in 1929.

There are actually very few Napierís in Belfast and fewer Samuels.

Profession? On Baby Jemima death he is registered as a Footballer, then in the 1911 Census he is a Ship Yard Labourer

There are a few Samuels in the Street directories as Fireman & Electrician....any clues?

Thatís some great info- do you have the reference to the baby who died in 1906?
Yes, he played football for Glentoran. Possibly was in the Royal Irish Rifles during the Great War. Iím not sure about any other occupation and may have died in the early 50ís

I found Sammy,
He died in 1930 and is buried in Milltown  Cemetary [/font][/size]028 90613972 [/font][/size]
Give them a ring and ask to speak with Betty or Liam, they are very helpful[/font][/size]
Give them the surname and date of death[/font][/size]
They will give you the plot number[/font][/size]
[/font][/size]

Good luck[/font][/size]

Thank you so much- I had looked in vain for the last few days, obviously not in the right places.

Just a quick sample of his football, there dozens of reports, far too many for me to download plus my broadband is playing up,
Here you go, enjoy

Thanks once again.

Burial at Milltown is odd as both were Protestant (Presbyterian and C of I) on the 1911 Census. Of course, one or both may have converted to Catholicism.
