OLD CEMETERY LOCATIONS
« on: October 01, 2020, 03:46:23 PM »
Hi Folks
I am trying to track down locations of the following cemeteries as noted in family death notices.  If anyone can point me in the direction of where these might be or where I might be able to obtain burial records, I would be most grateful.
'Lisburn Burying Ground' in 1864'Dunmurry' in 1885
Thanks in advance!
Nixey

Hi nixey15,

                 Have a search on proni web site, go to historical maps.
                 I went to Lisburn and you can change the map to different
                 years.  Looked up 1846 - 1862, found the Union Work House.
                 there is a grave yard in the ground way back from the house.
                 There must be more, the R C. Church has a graveyard

                You might be able to layer 1957 - 1986, above it?
                Good luck in your search.

                       Billy.
