Jim's Album Directory

Jim and his wife visited Belfast in May of 2013. He took these two photos of the "Little" burial plot at City Cemetery (double plot with no individual gravestones). He gave the following report by email
    "The memorial stone was commissioned after 1906 by William Cambridge Little, the younger brother of our grandfather James Little. The letters / numbers on memorial are cut from lead sheet and pinned to the granite stone. The memorial reads; "Erected by William C.
