Surnames: Goligher/ Galligher.
My grandmother was Elizabeth Goligher . She married Frederick Slater December 1913 in Ebrington Church Waterside. Her witness was Cassie Williams. Frederick was killed in action France 1915 when my mother was a baby. I have a few addresses conected to her , Foyle View , The Fountain, Windmill Terrace and Pitt Street . She remarried when my mother was 14 , Charles Mc Dermott from Pitt Street. Does this ring a bell with anyone I'm finding it hard to get information. Many Thanks , Lorraine.

There are a couple of books published recently with the names of those who were killed in WW1 from LDY. If you can get Fred Slater's service number and what Regiment or Corps he belonged to, you can go to the Commonwealth War graves commission website and get more information. Yes, I'm from LDY know the areas you are talking about and all are within 0.5 mile of each other. Another way of confirming where Lizzy was, is to look up 1901 census and on her birth cert. it probably shows the townland of Templemore which covers most of the City area. You mentioned Ebrington Presbyterian Church, this my church and the church where my ggrandparents were married at approx the same time. Lizzy would have been brought up and married in a Presbyterian Church but here last marriage would been to a Catholic. This is important if you want to find the grave, for example in the City Cemetery all groups are separated. If you give me more information I can possibly give you more.

I just want to update the information I have acquired since my last post regarding my Grandmother, Elizabeth Goligher ( Gallagher ) .Her grandparents were
James Goligher (Gallagher ),a Bookbinder by trade
and Matilda Bradley
They had four children, all born in 9 the Diamond.
Charles, born 1865
Elizabeth (Lizzie) born 1868,(who was my granny's mother)
Joseph,born 1870
Francis Edward, born 1872
There seems to be a strong connection with Scotland , I think some of the boys moved there at some time, possibly near Glasgow.
I found the family in 8, Foyle View (off Foyle Road) in the 1901 Census and in the same house in the 1911 census only by now there was only my granny (Lizzie) and her mother (Lizzie). Sometime after this they must have moved to the Fountain , as this is where my mother grew up.
My grandmother Elizabeth (Lizzie)was born in 1885. She married Frederick Slater, who was a soldier in the Royal Hampshire Regiment, in 1913 in Ebrington Presbyterian Church and my mother Lilian Mildred Slater was baptized there in 1914. Frederick died in Ypres in 1915.
My grandmother remarried a man called Mc Dermott who I think was originally from the Fountain, around 1927 and they lived in Pitt Street.If anyone can help to fill in the blanks, I'd be very grateful.
Regards, Lorraine

Many thanks for the list of names . There are a few interesting ones I would like to look into futher, like Charles Mc Dermott and Lizzie Mc Dermott 8 Pitt Street, thats an address thats come up before in my research. Have you any idea how I could go about it. Pity we can't get the census for 1921, its great to know what relationship people in the house are to the head of the house . Did you know that the Church of the Latter Day Saints on Racecourse Road in Pennyburn can get the 1911 census. They have a list of all the different areas, you pick the one you want and they can get it for around £3 and you have a month to look at it. Thanks again for taking the time trying to help me .
Lorraine.

Yes thats him. Unfortunatly most of his war records were distroyed in the bombings. His regiment gave us a lot of information but most of the official papers were lost. Thanks again.

If you block copy and paste the link below, you will find your grandfather's medal record card at the National Archives site:

www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/details-result.a...

but you'll have to pay £3.50 to retrieve it, so get your switch or visa card ready.

Hi

You mentioned Street Directorys, which I have used in the past. I know of a man who has built up a collection of Derry street directories for every year, however, it might be a lot easier for you to go back to the Foyle Street Central Library and ask on the 1st floor if they would allow you to look at their Street Directories.
