       In Memoriam

Phair, Bella, daughter died 10 April 1904 buried in city cemetery, Belfast. Family living

There is only a river between us
Parting our loved one a while,
Only a veil that divides us,
Hiding the light of her smile.

            In Memoriam

Michael J. Gillen killed in action at Gallipoli July 22nd 1916.

Sleep on dear son in a far off land,
In a grave we may never see,
But as long as life and memory last,
We shall still remember thee.

Also Lizzie Mulligan nee Gillen, died 22 March 1916.
