Particularly useful for genealogists is the attempt to include information about the deceased's place of birth. This isn't always supplied, and even when it is, it may only provide a pointer, but better a pointer than nothing. Two examples: Mary Skuze, who died in April 1885 at 14 Duncan Street, Cork, was born in Dunmanway, in the southwest of the county, and John Geraghty, who died May 1894 at 17 Summerhill, St Luke's, Cork, was born in County Roscommon.
Other information transcribed from the register is the location of grave, date of death, date of interment, religion, occupation, last place of residence, and marital status. This is the only St Finbarr's burial register currently held by the Archives, but it is hoped that additional registers (currently held by the cemetery) will be made available for digitisation in the future.
If you locate an ancestor in this register, you might like to check out the HistoricGraves.com; an ongoing project by a local team is working on photographing and transcribing headstones in this cemetery.
