Cork Archives add burial registers & Council minutes

Cork City and County Archives (CCCA) has updated its online offer with the burial registers of St Joseph's, a large Roman Catholic cemetery that dates from the mid-19th ce3ntury and is sited on the old Botanic Gardens on Tory Top Road, Ballyphehane, on the south side of Cork City.

The registers now available date from 1 Jul 1904 to 11 Jul 1917 and can be downloaded in a series of pdfs here.

The archives also hold burial voucher books in hard copy for the same dates. These books often record additional information such as the name and address of the owner of the grave and the cause of death but you need to visit the archives to study them.

Additionally, CCCA has today uploaded descriptive lists for ALL Cork City Council Committee minutes from 1867 to 1929. More details.
