Limerick burial registers database coming soon

Historic Graves have kindly advised me that Limerick's Mount Saint Lawrence burial registers will soon be appearing online in searchable format.

They are already available as browseable pdfs (here), but the collaborative team that's been working on the cemetery has just handed over the data to the IT folk to transfer to database.

These registers date from 1855 and contain the names, addresses at time of death, ages, position of the grave and dates of death of all those buried in the cemetery.

I'll let you know when the searchable database is uploaded.
