So, perhaps William who died in 1910, was known as Andrew, to distinguish him from his father, William.

Perhaps it's just that you didn't grow up with townland names as addresses  :)

Was wondering if you have any records as to where William Clarke is buried as William Clarke would be my husband's great uncle and his parents Eliza and William are his grandparents. We've looked a few graveyards and have so far not been successful any help would be greatly appreciated

If there is no headstone surviving (or never one in the first place) then it can be difficult to find where a person is actually buried. If they lived in Ballymoney then the most likely places of burial are the Cemetery (Knock Road) or a churchyard associated with the family.
