Burial records in orderly queue for New Year release

The busy team at has been commissioned to carry out surveying work at four more graveyards in Northern Ireland:

  • Magheradroll Cemetery, Ballynahinch, Co Down
  • Parish of Kilmegan, Castlewellan, Co Down
  • St Malachy's, Kilcoo, Co Down
  • St John the Baptist, Bushmills, Co Antrim

The surveys will commence in January. At the pace this team works, expect to see the results ie indexed and searchable burial records on the website within a couple of months.

Before then, several thousand additional records will have been uploaded from the nine graveyards announced at the beginning of December (these include burial grounds in Leitrim, Louth, Tyrone, Armagh and Derry – see report and list here). These freely available records will start to appear on the website early in the New Year.
