Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. It expanded rapidly from the 1600s onwards and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire after the 1800 Acts of Union. After the 1922 partition of Ireland, it became the capital of the Irish Free State.
These records contain burials in three cemeteries:
• St John The Baptist, Castle Avenue, Clontarf
• Drimnagh (Bluebell), Old Naas Road, Dublin
• St Canice’s, Finglas, Dublin
The age of the deceased was reported by either a family member or someone close to them, however, the age was not always known and at times could have been estimated. Be prepared to broaden your initial year of birth on a search
Try different variations of surnames when searching or removing the patronymic e.g. Connor rather than O'Connor, Andrew rather than McAndrew.
