Arklow Cemetery Records Help
« on: Friday 21 November 08 16:04 GMT (UK) »
I have been trying to do my mums side of the family tree, for years and years without success. I have now come across some pieces of papers with info on, which has enabled me to obtain some certificates, which will give me pieces of jigsaw to do.
I have also got details of a couple of grave ref numbers, with some names, one for the old cemetery in Arklow, and one for the new one, and if I could possibly find out any dates of the people interred there it would enable me to get certificate of death, to help me on my way.
Does anyone know where the records for the cemeteries will be kept for Arklow, either giving me and address or e-mail address to contact please.
Thank you for taking the time to read my message.
Catherine

Hello eadaoin,

Thank you for replying to my listing, it is very much appreciated. I have found loads of info on the site you mention, it has in the past answered a lot of my questions and Peggy has been very helpful. But info I am looking for, is that I have found some scraps of paper with the following on....
These are the details......

Grave number B56      New Cemetery
Interred in the Grave
James Flood on 18/07/1958
Mary Flood on 22/01/1961
 
These are the details......
Grave number 73 EE South  3 West     Old Cemetery
Bought by Edward Kelly
 
Interred in the grave are
Nannie Kelly on 26/03/1927
Thomas Kelly on 21/12/1931
Mary Kelly on 17/03/1945

Now if I could find out where the records for the cemeteries are kept, hopefully they may be able to give me the dates of death, so then I could obtain death certificates to find ages of these people.

Thank you again for replying, it is very much appreciated any advice.

Catherine   :)

if someone was in the GRO in Dublin looking at these years, they might keep an eye out for your people in the indexes, and post their age at death here.

Maybe you could post a request .. maybe on the Ireland - General board?

I was in Arklow Library today, the lady at the Desk had no clue what i was talking about :). she told me to go the the parish office and they suggested that I contact the undertaker as both he and his father keep/kept records  ;D

To the OP, the New and Old cemetries are both in St Gabriels cemetery  - they are just divided by a wall.

I will hopefully be up that end of town during the next week or so - i have taken your ref Nos and will see if i can track down the gravestones.

I live just outside arklow so im not often up that end of town

i have been the place myself and gone through all the books listing graves and graveyards.. ask for janet  she gave them to me.. they are reference books and you can only read them there... honestly you can see the grave records for lots of graveyards including the ones you want to research...

You already have dates of deaths when you get the  headstone data that is the date of death
so what more do you need before getting a certificate?

As Cara says, you have dates of death already. The index to Irish civil registrations is now online and using the details you already have (names, dates, places) you should now search the index to find registration district, volume and page numbers to order the appropriate certificates.

Not sure how familiar you are with Irish certificates but there really isn't much detail on them: name, age, place of death, cause of death, occupation, marital status, name of informant. Birthdate and place, names of parents or spouse, place of burial are NOT on death certificates. Also remember that age on the death certificate may not be acurate- it depends on whether or not the informant gave the correct information.
