Help. I am looking for any information regarding this lady, she married my grandfather on 2nd January 1939 in Belmont, County Down. I am not sure if they had a child, but he was reported missing on 29/05/1940 and wasn't repatriated until 2/8/1945, by this time they marriage had broken down - understandably! Can anyone help?

Belmont is a small district on the east side of Belfast on the way to Holwoood. Possibly the marriage took place in the Belmont Presbyterian Church at 92 Sydenham Road. Details on the marriage certificate might be of help. If you know the date you can get a copy of the certificate from <groni.gov.uk>

If you know the child's name and year of birth they should be able to locate the birth certificate. I think the fee covers a search withing a five year period. You might also considering writing a letter for publication to the editor of the Belfast Telegraph newspaper and someone might respond. If you go to Google search and look for irish newspapers or some such you should find the address. Alternatively there is the North of ireland Family History Society <nifhs.org> if a member they will print your search in North Irish Roots. people can be found in Ulster through <bt.com> directory assistance. You have to register and get a password.
