Thanks for your advice, Aghadowey.  Most of my other ancestors were non-conformist while still in England, and continued in those after emigration: but the fact that this branch of the family were C of E in South Australia, I did presume Church of Ireland.  Can't imagine they were Catholic.
Back to the "drawing board" then....
Cheers, Meredith

In Ireland it's usually only the Church of Ireland that kept burial records but not all of these registers survive. Before asking for burial details you need to check how far back the records actually go back.

I haven't been able to track down dates for the records but perhaps someone else will be able to do so.

This gravestone site does show that there are burials at Lisnadill Parish Church- although for the period you need it may be that the family never erected a headstone, headstone might exist but be illegible or that there was a stone but it's been removed to re-let the plot to another family.

In case you are not aware of this- since the Church of Ireland was at one time the Established (i.e. State) church, everyone had to pay tithes to it and thus might be buried in the Parish ground. Thus you will find all different religions buried in old family plots but these 'outsiders' are not always included in the burial register.

No problem!

Don't forget various spellings... Hanlin/Hanlon. The C of I would be your starting point based on religion after leaving, and only a starting point!

Armaghbreague was formed as a perpetual Curacy on Jan. 13, 1829, out of 3 townlands of Lisnadill and 3
townlands of Keady parishes the Rectors of Armagh (2 turns) and Keady (2 turns) having the right of nomination and contributing towards the Curate's income 60 and 20 respectively. The Church was built on land conveyed on Sep. 14, 1830, at a cost of 600, a gift from the Board of First Fruits (Rep. 1836). It was consecrated on Oct. 19, 1831 (D.R.).
The schoolhouse was erected in 1826.

Records extant: In P.R.O. 4 vols., viz.: Baptisms 1829-77; Marriages 1832-45, Burials 1831-77.

thanks so much for spending all this time on my query:
The Charlemont connection - does this mean I could find something if I visited the National Library when we get to Ireland next year?   
And thanks for the Armaghbreague record info:  I thought the Parish records I was needing were amongst those lost in the fire.  Those dates are perfect for my search!  So I'm definitely going to visit the PRO. 
How exciting, and encouraging....
I've only found out about my Irish heritage in the last few months: found Scottish at the same time - prior to these two popping up, I was entirely England-based.
Thank you for contributing to my excitement!  Meredith

Lisnadill corresponds to the ancient parish of Clonconchy, which seems to have been united to Armagh about 1630. The greater part of the parish was at one time religious property, held by the Primate, the Abbey of SS. Peter and Paul, Armagh, or the Abbess of the Ferta.

In 1772 43 townlands were separated from Armagh and formed into the Perpetual Curacy of Lisnadill on 5th June. The church was erected in the same year by Primate Robinson, and consecrated 2 Nov., 1782. A
stone in the tower gives the date as 1772 and bears the arms of Primate Robinson. The glebe house was built in the year 1776.

The ancient church was destroyed in 1641, but its large cemetery is still used.

The Communion Plate includes a silver chalice and paten, dated 1777, and a silver flagon dated 1681.

Records extant: Baptisms and Burials from 1778-1877, Marriages 1778-1845. Registers since these dates in possession of Incumbent,
