With a massive thanks to "DoireM" he has been able to find the grave number of this grave, it is "S b 698". If any kind soul would happen to be in the cemetery and know where this is, could they take a photo of the headstone for me. There is also a James begley in the grave too which I didn't know about.

 Thanks in advance

Colin, not sure if I'm allowed to post links here, but there's a group on Facebook called Friends of Derry City Cemetery Historic Headstones. Also, if you go to Find a Grave, there are a few photo-volunteers in the area.

Seamus Beslin - Project Coordinator of the Friends of Derry Cemetery would be the man to see.
