Synopsis

'Milltown has much to tell us about Belfast's chequered past, whatever our religion or politics. Our history is bigger than our tribe.' Milltown Cemetery, the burying ground for the Catholic community in Belfast for almost 150 years, is one of Belfast's most significant landmarks. Thousands of people come to the cemetery every year, some to reconnect with their family history, others drawn to the extraordinary stories of the people buried there. Mill workers, labourers, clergy, Italian immigrants, victims of the Blitz, soldiers of the First and Second World Wars, political activists, IRA volunteers, republicans, victims of the Troubles - Milltown's graves are a historical record of the social, religious and political life ofBelfast over two centuries. In this book, Tom Hartley, leading authority on the graveyard, guides the reader around Milltown. With over one hundred photographs, and detailed entries on over three hundred noteworthy graves, this is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to know more about Belfast and its people.

Tom Hartley was born in Belfast in 1945 and has been active in politics for over forty years. He was both the General Secretary and National Chairperson of Sinn Fein, and in May 1993 he was elected to Belfast City Council, where he chaired several Council committees, including the Arts and Tourism sub-committees and the Policy and Resources committee. From 2008 to 2009 he was lord mayor of Belfast. He retired from the Council in September 2013 after twenty years service to the citizens of Belfast. In his spare time, Tom pursues his love of history and interest in the environment by organising historical walks through Belfast City Cemetery for Feile an Phobail. He works to highlight the importance of our burial sites as a repository of the political, social and economic history of Belfast. He is the author of the bestselling Written in Stone series - Milltown Cemetery and Belfast City Cemetery.
