Cemeteries near Lime Street
« on: Monday 19 July 21 22:31 BST (UK) »
Hello! Iím wondering if anyone would know where people living at 11 Lime Street would have been buried? My Coyne ancestors lived at that address for many decades. Thank you

what religious denomination and timeframe ?

most of the city graveyards were closed during the 19th century and burials usually took place in one of the larger cemeteries on the outskirts of the city, e.g. Glasnevin, Mount Jerome or a little later Deansgrange, or sometimes in a plot outside Dublin if  the family originated outside the city, or county... if not too far away. Burial records for Deansgrange are available free online, Glasnevin records are on a paywebsite, there are also various Headstone transcripts on line, e.g. IGP, FindAGrave etc

You can see a map of the various graveyards & cemeteries in Dublin county and city with details on any records on the Dublin City Library website also a map here

Lime street was in St. Mark's civil and church of Ireland parish, the church was on Great Brunswick Street, and has an attached graveyard, the church building and graveyard are still there although not functioning as a church. The graveyard may at times have been shared with other denominations, e.g. RC Presbyterian etc, living in the same parish although these may not have been included in the burial registers.

I don't see them in Glasnevin.
Is it just the 20th century they lived in Lime Street?

They were probably Roman Catholic

I think there may have been more than one Lime street in Dublin city, some baptism records on Irish Genealogy show up for a Lime street in St. Mary's which is Dublin North city, and also St. James, which is to the West of the city, most of these are early 1800s or 1700s. The later 1860+ RC and CofI baptisms which mention Lime Street are generally St. Andrew RC or St. Mark CofI - both of which would fit with the Lime Street mentioned earlier, which is off Sir John Rogerson's Quay

edit : found a Coyne reference at that Lime Street address, 1915 Elizabeth Coyne in the Electoral Rolls, no sign of them at the address on the 1911 census so must have moved there between 1911 and 1915

Thanks to all for your very helpful replies. The link from athacliath62 for the Dublin burials, graveyards and maps of where they are will be very helpful in my research!  :)

I was able to find quite a few buried in Clontarf
CASTLE AVENUE (SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST)
ADDRESS:   Clontarf, Dublin 3 (adjacent to Clontarf Castle)

I did check Glasnevin without success but will continue checking around.

dublin1850, very late 19th to 20th Centuries for now and they were RC.

I think they lived in Seaview Avenue Clontarf for a while which was Elizabeth Archibald's family home.
I think one child was born while they lived in Spring garden passage, North Strand.
The Coyne family may have been from Hollybrook.

The above i based on what I believe is the family in the 1911 and 1901 census.

They are sometimes under Hanover Street.

Dublin1850, Thank you very much for your info. Yes, that is them. Seaview Avenue :)


I descend from Elizabeth Archbold-Coyneís older sister Margaret Archbold-Gregory. Iím building out our tree by connecting DNA cousins. Iím very thankful for the Irishgenealogy .ie site. Itís so much easier now that the Civil records are available online. Putting the pieces of this family puzzle together. :)

You could look at this site, particularly KILBARRACK cemetery
https://buried.fingal.ie/search-for-a-burial/

Many Dubliners were buried in Kilbarrack (mainly North city dwellers), also people from Clontarf and surrounding areas.

Edit: Sarah and Patrick Coyne from Clontarf 1950s
