Sexton records of Feakle Co. Clare
« on: Thursday 25 July 19 03:23 BST (UK) »
Hello,
  Can anyone advise me who holds these records? They don't seem to be held at the Church in Feakle.
One of our Grandfathers is buried there, we know this from Obit that states mass in Feakle and to Feakle Graveyard for burial... this was in 1936....

Thanks

Sorry I may of confused Sexton: "a person who looks after a church and churchyard, typically acting as bell-ringer and gravedigger" So I am acutely after the original records of this Feakle Graveyard, because there are many that are not recorded, that are there one of these is my Grandfather lol!

The only Feakle graveyard seems to be the one at the old Church of Ireland site, no longer any church as far as I can see.
