Thank you all so much, wasn't expecting so many response with great information! I'm still looking to find out when William and Elizabeth Clark nee McKinnon died - i'm presuming it's in Belfast as i know they moved there but I guess it could be Scotland if they went back- myheritage.com isn't helping me out at all - You guys seem to find things so much quicker than me - where's best to look?

Scotland's People is best for Scottish records. The marriage cert. for William and Elizabeth from there should give you the names of their parents and help with going back further. I use Ancestry, FindMyPast, and Freecen to help to narrow down census searches.

I have little experience with Irish records but did wonder if this is a possibilty for Alexander Clark in the 1911 Irish census.

23 Carew Street, Victoria, co Down - Alexander Clark 22 Labourer in rope works b Scotland. Living in the household of a Samuel Johnstone.

I think the rest of the family are showing as Clarke in the 1911 census at 118 East Bread Street, Pottinger, co Down

William Clarke 52 rivetter b Glasgow
Elizabeth Clarke 52 b Glasgow
Robert Clarke 25 ropework labourer b Yoker dunbartonshire
William Clarke 20 tailor b Scotland
Elizabeth Clarke 18 flax spinner b Whiteinch Scotland
Mary Clarke 16 flax spinner b Belfast
Ruth Clarke 14 doffer?in mill b Belfast
Jennie Clarke 10  scholar b Belfast
Isabella Clarke 8 scholar b Belfast

William

Isabella's birth although mothers surname is spelt differently and father job is different.
