    I had a search around and sadly it doesn't appear that there are any Workhouse records for Strabane prior to 1862. See:

    Hello! I am seeking information on a Charles Lynch and a Mary Bradley Lynch - who were in/around this region. I know of three children - Jane, Susan and Felix. All of the kids list Strabane Workhouse as their residence prior to leaving. The three children took the boat in 1851 to Quebec - where they all married/lived. On all three marriage certificates they list the above names as parents, and that they are deceased. Can't find much else! Any help would be appreciated. Knowing that the name Felix is quite interesting - and naming patterns typically follow a senior (grandfather/brother or ?) - there may be another Felix in the family tree. My Felix (the child) named his children - Francis Felix; Charles Edward; Felix John - so again, the family names keep repeating. Thoughts? Thanks!

    Death registration didn’t start in Ireland till 1864 before that, there probably won’t be any record of it. The RC church generally doesn’t keep burial records in Ireland, and sadly someone whose children ended up in the workhouse probably wasn’t wealthy enough to have a gravestone.

    There are several RC parishes in the area. Ardstraw East only has baptisms from 1860 onwards; Ardstraw West from 1846; Clonleigh has records from 1836 with gaps. The RC parish records are on-line free on the National Library site:

    If Charles & Mary died after 1864 there should be a death certificate for them, probably registered in Strabane. You can view the original certificates on-line on the GRONI website, using the “search registrations” option:

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