Fingal County Council has released a new interactive guide, Buried in Fingal https://buried.fingal.ie/ The free database includes searchable details of more than 65,000 people interred between 1905 and 2005 in 33 of the burial grounds in the council’s care in North County Dublin. The site is searchable by name and graveyard. Search returns provide date of interment, area of last residence, and precise grave plot identifiers plus, in most cases, a link to a clear image of the register entry. The oldest burial record dates to 1877 and the most recent to 2013. Additionally, the online guide includes an overview of the history, notable burials and epitaphs of each graveyard, location maps, photographs, and where they exist, plus historical plot maps and drawings.
