1. Cork County Council Graveyard Burial Registers

Skibbereen Heritage Centre has transcribed the burial registers for some 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 when they are available. Please note Skibbereen Heritage Centre does not hold the registers or any additional information on any these sites, or on other graveyards in the area. For further information on how to find information on burials not listed here please listen to our genealogy podcast.
