Belfast Genealogy / Re: Searching for Charlie Lavery

Letís start the next bit with your Grandfather Philip.
Itís not uncommon for things to be lost in translation etc, dates, names, all sorts of things may be mis interrupted and here is a classic example.
There is no question about it on the 1911 Census that Philip, the eldest of 7 kids but look at the bottom entry on the Census. It shows James but there is no age recorded. The Census also shows 7 children born and only 6 living. It is James who died.

Philip is shown as aged 13 which gives a birth year of 1898ish.

However GRONI shows that a child born to a Lavery & a Ward was named Joseph born 10th January 1898
Cross reference it with IrishGeaneology records and it shows a Philip Lavery born to Joseph & Mary Ward 10th January 1898

In this instance GRONI got it wrong, they used the fathers name Joseph as the name of the child.

yeah thats the one i have
I had the headstone redone about 8 or 9 years ago.
The headstone only showed Con as being in the grave but I came across a headstone in Ballymena saying that Bernard was interred in Randalstown, so back to Randalstown spoke to a guy from the Church who looked after the burial archives and found out that Cons father Bernard was buried with him. I then had the stone engraved with his name etc and cleaned.
