Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The Belfast (Ireland) City Council has placed on line about 360,000 burial records including Belfast City Cemetery-records from 1869 including Jewish records, as well as more recent burials at Roselawn Cemetery and Dundonald Cemetery.  When using the search mechanism--you need at a minimum the surname and the extraction will show the following information: name, age, sex, place of last residence, date of death, date of burial, cemetery, grave section and type of burial--for example, earth burial or cremation.
