Grace b. 7 May 1874 Stobhill, Midlothian
Batch: C119221

Births, Deaths, Marriages and Obituaries
The Belfast News-Letter (Belfast, Ireland), Friday, February 10, 1899; Issue 26059.
MACKENNA - WEST.-February 8, at 9 Elgin Terrace, Edinburgh by the Rev. Dr. Blair, St. Johns Parish Church, James Mackenna, Armagh, youngest son of the late Robert Mackenna, Killin??, county ?, to Grace, eldest daughter of the late Joseph West, late of 21 Leith Street, Edinburgh and Clayhouse Cottage, Gorebridge, Midlothian.

There is a Grace Mackenna on the incoming passenger list for 1929 born abt. 1873 place of residence Armagh.

I can't find a death for Grace.

I've given up looking for a death for husband James b. 1871 Co Louth.

If Grace died post 1921, in what is now Northern Ireland, then those death records are not on any of the current on-line sites, save for GRONI. That site lists a Grace McKenna death on 4.11.1942 in Belfast, aged 63. You might want to look at that. You can view the original certificate on-line on the GRONI website, using the “search registrations” option:

https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk

You will need to open an account and buy some credits. It costs £2.50 (sterling) to a view a certificate.

I noticed this probate abstract for a retired clerk. Not sure if it’s your James though.

McKenna James of Clifton House North Queen Street Belfast retired clerk died 6 January 1956 Probate Belfast 1 February to William Chesney caretaker. Effects £165 19s. 5d.

Widow of John – van man suggests it’s not the right Grace.

51 Lisburn Rd is Belfast Workhouse. It had an infirmary attached and it was common for people to be taken there if seriously ill. That her normal address was given indicates she probably wasn’t a long term resident of the workhouse.
