Cork Archives adds more free burial records

Cork Archives has added to its collection of free-to-download pdfs of the burial records from St.Joseph's Cemetery, a major graveyard at Tory Top Road, Ballyphehane, Cork City.

The recent upload of burial registers is available in a series of 58 pdfs covering the period from 2 January 1877 to 30 June 1904. This latest tranche of records joins those from 1 July 1904 to 11 July 1917, which have been available for just over a year.

Cork City & County Archives also holds a paper copy of the burial voucher books for this period. These books often hold additional information of interest to researchers such as details of the owner of the grave and the cause and location of death of the deceased.
