Belfast City Cemetery lies on the Falls Road, Belfast, Co. Antrim. It is one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in the Northern Ireland capital.
Belfast City Cemetery opened in 1869. Opened by the Belfast Corporation, it sought to provide burial plots for people of Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish faiths. There are over 230,000 graves in the cemetery.
A hidden wall 10 feet high runs underground between the Protestant and Catholic graves. This separates residents of the city even after death. Among some of the more renowned burials are James Harland of Harland and Wolff and Thomas Gallaher, the tobacco baron.
Commonwealth War Graves in Belfast City Cemetery
There are 272 World War Two Commonwealth War Graves Commission graves in Belfast City Cemetery. Many others lost during the war have their names remembered on family memorials. Vandals have attacked graves in both Belfast City Cemetery and Milltown Cemetery. Anti-social behaviour in the area has been a problem.
