Belfast City Cemetery opened on 1 August 1869 and by the beginning of the 20th century, the cemetery was firmly established as one of the largest burial grounds in Belfast. However, more space was needed and, in June 1912, Belfast Corporation purchased 54 acres of the adjoining Glenalina estate from Henry Patterson, extending the cemetery westwards towards the Black Mountain. The first burial in the Glenalina section took place on November 13, 1915 and was officially renamed Belfast City Cemetery. In 1914, a section of the cemetery was reserved for the burial of sailors and soldiers. (Source: Belfast City Council)
