The Interment Registers of Deansgrange and Shanganagh Cemeteries can now be searched and viewed at DiscoverEverAfter.com. Headstone photos and mapped locations are available for some, but certainly not all, of the individual graves.

Both burial grounds are located in South Dublin and are managed by DĂșn Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (DLRCC), who say the online collection is not yet complete. If you can't find an entry in the register, you are invited to email DLRCC at cemeteries@dlrcoco.ie.

Deansgrange's records date back to 1865. The cemetery, in Blackrock, covers an area of 65 acres and its records hold details of more than 140,000 people. Search its register here.

The first burial in Shanganagh (Shankill) took place in 1984 and there have been nearly 16,500 burials in the Cemetery. Search its register here.
