ANTRIM CHURCH RECORDS & GRAVEYARDS

Clifton Street Cemetery, Belfast: "PDF books for the history of the cemetery, books that contain the information covered in the tours and a brief history of the Belfast Charitable Society, Grave Records for the Upper and Lower Ground and contains the names and date of deaths for those within."

www.cliftonstreetcemetery.com

Note: records seem to give place of origin for deceased so details of many people born outside Belfast are found here

Hi, I have spent a fortune getting grave searches done in Milltown only to discover that they are available for free in PRONI. 
It is very time consuming to go through the micro films but it is so worthwhile.
Included:
Burial records for general grounds from 1871-1960 (some 1962s).
Register of Grants.
Poor or public ground burials.
Friars Bush burials.
I have found so much family info by doing this it has really helped with my tree.
I found a grave bought by my Great Great Granda in 1871 and interred in it children that my family didnt know existed.
On the same day a grave was purchased by his next door neighbour, this neighbour was the sponsor 4 my Great Granda in 1876 - I was finally able trace who this lady was as her surname didnt match any on my tree.  I now believe she is the sister of my Great Great Granda.
I have recorded the following family names and can check my records:
Dempsey, Donnelly, Farr, Foster, Gracey, Madden, Nolan, O'Hara, O'Neill, Rooney.
I am currently recording Bogue, Boyle, Shiels, McAlister & McCormack
