William's Royal Navy record is viewable on FindMyPast. Short but informative. He died of pneumonia on HMTS Serapis on 22 December 1889, following quinsey - the result of a chill caught during embarkation of troops at Portsmouth.

Thank you once again - luckily I have a subscription to FindMyPast.  And my friend is just over the moon  ;D ;D  She may have to go and lie down in a darkened room  :-*

Found Esther! ;D

10th March 1832 at Ramsey
Esther Blayney   daughter of Cornelius Donovan and Margaret, alias Walsh his wife
Private baptism

Not much information on the burial register for Esther or Robert, except that it was Kirk Braddan.
That was almost certainly the Old Churchyard.
I know there is a typed MI list inside the Old Church; so I'll try to see if I can find a grave?

Many thanks.  I'll pass that on to my friend, who is a descendant of William Walsh Blayney.   :)
