lookup for scott death
« on: March 28, 2021, 08:49:55 PM »
could anyone lookup the death notice for a John Scott who died 12 Jan 1895 buried I think 14 Jan 1895. He was 65 years old who died after being knocked down by a horse and cart on 12 Dec 1894 and I was wanting to find out where he's buried.

Is this possibly him? https://dof.belfastcity.gov.uk/burialsearch/BurialRecordDetails.aspx?RecordID=7309.3540
The age is wrong but worth checking as it may be transcribed incorrectly.

Sorry, just a coincidence. Date of death correct but I checked on GRONI and this John Scott is definitely 8 years old. So not the ancestor you are looking for.

and another inquest report with different details but I could not find death notice either. This one from the Belfast Newsletter, 15 Jan 1895

Yes the inquest is very interesting I was wondering what his wife was called but it didn't say at the inquest other than saying he was a widow. He was living with his daughter in Mountcollyer Rd at the time he was knocked down. It looks like I have hit a brick wall ,  thank you for your help .
