1. Cork County Council burial registers
2. Graveyard Surveys.

1. Cork County Council Graveyard Burial Registers
Skibbereen Heritage Centre has transcribed the burial registers for some West Cork graveyards, kindly made available to us by Cork County Council. Click on the map below to see the graveyard burial registers and dates covered. Skibbereen Funeral Register, transcribed by our volunteer Patricia, also records over 2,000 burials in various graveyards in the Skibbereen area and the Cape Clear Funeral Register is also included.

The information made available on this website includes burial details such as name, date of death, date of burial and address. The original pages from the registers are also available to download in PDF format for all except the Skibbereen Funeral Register and Cape Clear burials. Please note Skibbereen Heritage Centre does not hold the registers or any additional information on these sites, or on other graveyards in the area.

2. Graveyards Survey
The database also includes the results of a graveyard survey carried out some years ago with the support of the Heritage Council.
With the help of our data-inputter Deirdre, and volunteers Patricia, William and Barry, Skibbereen Heritage Centre has a database of over 380,000 local records. Many of these are available to search free of charge on the links below.
