Edith Mildred Taylor, Belfast
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 20:39 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I'm trying to find out about an Edith Mildred Taylor who died 11th June 1965, aged 53, and was buried on 14th June 1965 in plot C5 417, Dundonald Cemetery, Belfast. This plot is also the grave for Helen Drysdale Peffers (17/03/1876 - 08/03/1948) who married Gilbert Dempster Taylor (born 8th March 1874 in Haddington).

I know about Helen & Gilbert but Edith is new to me. FindMyPast has a birth in 1913 for an Edith M Taylor but I don't know if this is the same one as I don't have full access to FindMyPast.

Can anyone help me understand who Edith is and why Edith & Helen are sharing a grave?

Regards
Taylor

Is she possibly their daughter,
I see they are in Cumberland in 1911,with one son
and is that your Gilbert's death in Carlisle in 1937,
Helens probate was granted many years after she died to her son,

Possibly a niece? If not a child. Or a daughter in law

Supposedly in Ireland a graveplots belonged to whoever retained ownership of the house

What do you know about Helen and Gilberts son Ernest? Did he marry?

The death certificate is available for a small fee of the GRONI search, and will tell you who the informant is and place Edith lived as well her marital status, which could help a lot!

Not always true for churchyards and certainly council cemeteries, such as Dundonald, will have rules in place to determine ownership of plots after last registered owner is deceased.
