in the libary in arklow you can look up the book of the dead.. you cannot take these from the place.. they list all graves in arklow..

Sorry to refute this but they do not list all the deaths or indeed all the headstones of Arklow

The cemetery book is housed in a private home in Arklow and can only be viewed by a visit by appointment to said home.

I suggest you look at the IGP Progect site for headstones for said area as well or contact Peggy Leonard she herself has transcribed ALL headstones for Emoclew which is the graveyard you are seeking Flood people just inside top gate RH side

Cheers
CL

Dear Colin
I just saw this post on rootschat and wondered if you could help me at all?
My gg grandmother died on 9th Jan 1915 in Arklow.  Her name was Ellen Elliott (nee Kenny) and was approx 80 years old and lived on Wexford Road.  Her husband (William Elliott) died 26 July 1871 at the age of 48, her son Robert Elliott died 6 Jan 1871 age 3 from scarletina, a month before her son William was born in Feb 1871.
William moved to Dublin in 1901 (he married Mary English from Arklow) but died in 1913.  So Ellen, his mother, outlived them all.
It looks like a neighbor registered Ellen's death (Mary Murphy) in March 1915.  Would you know if any of the family are buried either together or separately in Arklow Cemetery ? 
Any info on the Elliotts would be greatly received.
Incidently, I also have a record of a Margaret Elliott born 28.04.1856 to William and Ellen but they didn't marry until November 1867.  I have no record of what happened to her, whether she lived/married/died young.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you

Dear Mr O'Reilly,

I saw your post about Arklow cemetery and as I’ve got ancestry from Arklow I wondered whether you might be able to provide me with some information.

My great-grandparents James O’Neill (10/11/1890-1978) and Anne/Annie Redmond (24/08/1890-1965) were born in Arklow and later emigrated to England. James’ parents were James O’Neill (born about 1850 in County Carlow, died 4 May 1941 in Arklow) and Kate Kehoe (born about 1848 in County Wexford, died in 1923 in Arklow). Anne’s parents, I believe, were Michael Redmond and Sarah O’Neill, presumably born in Arklow as well. I was wondering whether you would have any information on them or know whether those of them who died in Arklow are buried in Arklow cemetery and, if so, were I might want to search were I to visit in the future.

Thank you,
Felix Lee
