General description

Thomas Knox Armstrong was born on 13 July 1797 at Drumglass in county Tyrone. He was the third son of Reverend William Jones Armstrong and Margaret Tew.

Educated at Dungannon School he was admitted at Trinity College of Dublin in 1822.

He held the office of Justice of the Peace and he lived at Fellows Hall in Killylea, County Armagh, Ireland.

He married Catherine Frances Brabazon, daughter of Wallop Brabazon and Jane du Pré, in 1833, and had issue: Jane Rebecca Armstrong, born 29 April 1835, and Catherine Diana Lucinda Armstrong, born 25 January 1839.

He rented Fellows Hall, Killylea from the Stronges c.1835-38. By 1839 he was described at his death as ‘of Elm Park’, Killylea, which he must have rented from the Blacker-Douglases.

In 1839 he went to Italy for the benefit of his health but died in Rome, 13 January 1840, and was buried in the Protestant Cemetery there, where he is commemorated by a monument.

His will led to litigation in Chancery between his brother and widow which was not resolved until a decree in 1850. His widow died at Oban (Argylls), 31 August 1871.

The complete guide to find a grave

All the graves of the Non-Catholic Cemetery can be located through the position details that can be read within each single buried person’s page or gravestone’s page itself.

Exact position can be located by 4 simple fields: The Area (Zona), The quarter (Riquadro), The Row (Fila) and The Position (Posizione).


The Areas (Zona)

The Non-Catholic cemetery of Rome is composed by 5 large areas. All areas are bounded by walkable paths, so they are very easy to locate.

ATTENTION: We gently remind to all visitors that the Antica(A) area is a flat and grassy garden, and the graves are scattered in a very informal fashion. Furthermore we suggest you to exclusively refer to the walk’s map and also to the photo of the gravestone to locate the exact position.


The quarter* (Riquadro) *valid only for the Terza Zona (3)

The quarter is strictly related to the Terza Zona of the cemetery.

This area is divided into 4 quadrants numbered as shown in this map.

Only the graves in the Terza Zona will have the quarter indicated in the position information.

The field that represent the quarter will be empty/not visible in each other grave except the graves in the Terza Zona.

Please note that to identify any tomb it is always possible to refer to the walk’s map and to the photo of the grave.





The Row (Fila) 

The graves in the cemetery are mostly laid out in ordered rows.

Only the Zona Antica(A) and the tombs along the walls, for example ossuaries, are an exception.

In order to count the row number it is necessary to recognize the lower part of the cemetery as a reference. The Non-Catholic cemetery in fact extends over a slight slope (except for the Zona Antica which is flat but does not have rows).

The first row will always be the one at the lowest level compared to the others.

Once the first row is identified it will be easy to count all the others rows.



The Position (Posizione)

It is used to locate the grave within the reference row.

The position can be identified by counting the graves from left to right.

The count must be made always starting from the left end of the area where the tomb is located.
