Pragmatist, Let me know a name and date and I can check for you. The wages ledgers are still preserved in Belfast at PRONI. I have photographs of every page of these ledgers between September 1881 and January 1912. I would have photographed more, but PRONI is closed due to the pandemic.How kind of you - thank you very much. His name is not there, but what that means I don't know - possibly it is a matter of the date as he died in the April, from, I was told, stomach cancer. Perhaps he was hospitalised for a period.
Once again, many thanks,
