A brilliant find, PaulC78. I now know her cause of death. A lot of IFs but if she had served in a military hospital and if the blood poisoning had been caused through her work she may have been eligible for CWGC commemoration. As it stands, not enough proof available to put forward.

Hi Jim, was up in Newcastle this weekend and managed to get some photos for Kate Elizabeth Ogg at St John's Westgate and Elswick Cemetery.

I haven't heard back from the people who could give me access to the Drumcondra grave (Eleanor Frances HILL) but I hope I will get to Glasnevin (MAHONY, PLUNKETT) and Grangegorman (WALLACE) before Christmas.

Hi Jim I see that Sheffield is off your list now does that mean you have the photos of P Banks in the Weslyan chapel Sharrow Vale?

Wayne, Thank you for bringing this up. I am sitting on the fence with this one. I have placed Miss P. Banks to one side for the time being as I don't think that she was a casualty of war. I think that the Sharrow Vale Road memorial is to remember all those that served from the congregation and not just those that died. I need to research her a bit more but without a first name this will probably take time and a lot of trawling through the 1911 census for the area. Having taken her out of my listing I could just as easily pop her back in. Thank you for providing the photograph which makes it a bit more likely that I will do so.

I think you're right Jim. I'll we transfer all the photos to you for you to look at. 

 

Thank you, Wayne, safely received. The centre of the memorial lists those that died and the rest, like Miss P. Banks, is amongst those that served. But I do appreciate your getting these photographs as it does help to clarify matters. I may still use them.

Diudn't make it before Christmas but hope to do a tour of Glasnevin Cemetery tomorrow for Nollaig na mBan (Women's Christmas) and will get that photo for you, Jim. Grangegorman still on my to-do list.

Jim - I had no luck yesterday afternoon. Although staff directed me to the general area in which the Mahony grave should be, I couldn't find it in the time I had.  When I asked about the Plunkett name on the War Memorial, the staff member seemed surprised at my question. The WW1 memorial I found is to the 'Officers, NCOs and MEN who served and died' and there is no Plunkett (male nor female) listed on it.  Do you know if there is another WW1 memorial in the cemetery?

 

When I came home, I did find a Plunkett online - is this the same person?

Sheila's name is recorded on the Glasnevin Cemetery War Memorial, Dublin. Her name is also mentioned on a memorial in the family plot in Glasnevin Cemetery and which reads "Sacred to the memory of Randal Plunkett of Bellview died 11th May 1852 and of his beloved son Alan Vincent Plunkett who died on the 4th of October 1857 aged 16 years. Cecil 5th May 1893 infant son of J. Randal and Cecilia Mary Plunkett. John Randal Plunkett died 14th April 1915 aged 65 years. Clara Punkett died 13th March 1916 aged 75 years. Sheelagh (sic) Isabel Mary youngest daughter of the above John Randal Plunkett drowned in the sinking of the S.S. Leinster 10th Oct. 1918, aged 21 years".

This information is shown here :- https://www.rmsleinster.com/people/PLUNKETT_Sheelah Isabel Mary.htm

The photograph here may help you to more easily find the headstone with her name on it :- https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/107499411/sheelah-isabel_mary-plunkett

This site states that she is buried in Glasnevin but I have no evidence that the body was recovered. I suspect that this is an error and muddled with the celebrated Grace Gifford Plunkett who is buried in the cemetery or, more likely, that her name, in absentia, is on the Randal Plunkett grave marker :- https://www.youwho.ie/plunkett.htmlhttps

As for the war memorial I have often found mention of men, but, nevertheless, have women listed. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a list of the names on the Glasnevin war memorial in question to confirm one way or the other.

This is the WW1 memorial I checked - names are inscribed alphabetically and there's definitely no Plunkett there. It also says the named are buried in the cemetery.  Maybe some other Dublin-based person can enlighten me as to the location of other WW1 memorials with the cemetery?

Hi Jim, this was posted elsewhere on the forum earlier today, just in case you missed it...

My version of the headstone dates back to 2005 and was taken by Chris Noble. It was in fairly good nick then but was recumbent on a wooden pallet.
