Well done to the Cork City & County Archives for creating a new search aid that will be incredibly useful for relatives, historians and genealogists. This is a 118 page “Register of Interments St. Finbarr’s Cemetery, Glasheen Road, Cork 25 Feb 1868-14 Jun 1896” available online at http://corkarchives.ie/media/CP-CY-FI-1-web(Surname-Order).pdf .

The register is sorted alphabetically by surname and is searchable. Information included is surname, forename(s), date of death, date of interment, location of grave (by section, row, grave), cause of death, gender, age, unit [?], religion, occupation, place of birth, last known residence, marital status, register page and number. There is more information about this digital register at the CCCA website where there is also a digital image of a sample page from the original register available to view. (At the webpage the date for the register is given as “5 December 1867 to 10 June 1896” but the PDF has a date of “25 Feb 1868-14 Jun 1896”.)

This fantastic research tool is now added to the other digitised search aids created by the CCCA (including register of St Joseph’s cemetery (1877-1917) and many other cemeteries in the city and county).
