Take this in-app audio tour of the Belfast City Cemetry to learn the story of women who played important roles in the history of Belfast. You will see the grave of the woman who fully devoted her life to saving the people of Belfast. Dr. Elizabeth Gould Bell was the first woman to graduate and practice medicine in Ulster and in Belfast. Continue to the Belfast Blitz Memorial Stone, dedicated to those who were killed in the air raids of the Belfast Blitz in 1941, and learn about the greatest losses of life in any raid outside London during the Blitz. Back then, people used to live in severe conditions which were especially hard for children. You will hear the sad story of the McCutcheon family whose ten children died from diseases such as pneumonia, diphtheria, convulsions, and congested lungs. Visit the place where an innocent victim of a petrol bombing in the Northern Irish conflict of 1966 was buried. Matilda Gould was the first person injured and the first woman to die as a result of this conflict. Then, you will discover the burial of an outstanding female artist, Anne Marjorie Robinson, who exhibited in London, including the Royal Academy. You will be amazed to know what kind of portrait she made for the royal family. Finish the tour at the grave of Clara Copley, an incredibly strong woman in a man's world.
