Co. Antrim cemetery recognition
« on: Monday 30 October 17 17:45 GMT (UK) »
Hello all,

Does anyone recognize the cemetery in the photo?
James Stanley McCalmont lived at Windcrest, Islandmagee at the time of his death in 1977.
I don't know where the accident occurred.
I am hoping to connect with any relatives he may have & if I can learn where the cemetery is they may have information as to who paid for the burial etc.
I have been unable to find online any newspaper reportage of the accident or an obituary/death notice.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

J.A.M.

The cemetery is unlikely to have details of who paid for the burial but may be able to tell you the name registered with them as owner of the plot if they keep such records.

PRONI should have copy of Will & estate papers-
McCalmont James of 90 Victoria Gardens Belfast master mariner died 11 December 1937 at sea in Belfast Lough Probate Belfast 6 May to Margaret Elizabeth McCalmont the widow. Effects 1543 4s.and-
McCalmont Margaret Elizabeth of Wyndcrest Islandmagee county Antrim widow died 28 December 1950 at Moyle Hospital Larne county Antrim Probate Belfast 22 August to James Stanley McCalmont clerk and John Davis Templeton incorporated accountant. Effects 2910 15s. 5d.
