That photo is both lovely and sad at the same time. That's the first time I've seen flowers other than those placed on graves
in a cemetery. It's a nice touch.

Jemser,

Great that you have recorded the beautiful display.It was the most joyous display. Last day I was there people were thronging in for Mother's Day and I am sure everyone felt the same as me...very uplifted.

Went up at last for a long and overdue visit around the cemetery the other day
the changes in the last while are to be applauded -congrats to the guys who work there -
the cemetery looks clean and bright -the amount of trees and bushes that have been removed --
the two guys in the office I had questions for could not have been more helpful and peered through volume after volume --
thank you to them both.
Went into the coffee shop then after -
I lemonade
An open brown bread sambo and coffee
lovely very tasty -
11-50 ====I suppose it was an experience not to be missed.
I tell you first and last time -no wonder it was'nt busy.

Yeah...the coffee shop is too pricey. I was a great champion at the start. She worked so hard. Freshly baked scones and cakes. Freshly brewed coffee and top of the range jam etc but, making individual pots of filtered coffee and charging X for them makes a chat over coffee too expensive. Been ages since I was in there but, met another chatty rocker and we talked so long the pots of coffee were cold ..we asked for a hot sup and she brewed up two fresh pots at i forget how much phew .....it was about 12 Euros at this stage and we had had a hot cup of coffee each. If she had a Kona coffee brewing she could have charged us 2to3 Euros for the hot sup and we all would have been delighted.

It is a great facility and perfect for a cold morning after a funeral but it takes everyday passing punters to keep anywhere going and the likes of me is not dropping in now.

Grammer did you have to pay for the search ,I was reading the price list on the gate lodge( now the new office)a few weeks ago I think I read about a fee,I do know I saw the price of a new grave in the Garden plot will set your next of kin back sixteen grand :shock:its up in smoke for me .As for the coffee shop as Rocker says it was a nice place to drop into when it opened first but now its a case of " bite the hand that feeds you"

Hi Holla -I more or less had the grave number I was looking for
Turns out I had the wrong row number -but the guy suggested I go back and check again -headstone names on each side if possible
which I did -the guys are really helpful in the office.
I think if you have a name and year it would'nt be a problem even if you dont know the plot number.
======================
As far as I know there is no search fee ---dont know about in depth research-perhaps Rocker or Gulliver would know more about that.
I do know that in the next year or so there are plans to computerize everything -so fees I reckon will be on the cards then.
==========================================================

looking for the grave of my great grandmother who passed away 18th feb 1936 and believed to be buried there. As I don't live in Ireland its hard for me to get the information, so if anyone can help it would be grand. I know she was married in Glenealy then moved to Dublin which was her address at death. thanks.

Deansgrange Cemetery is now under the control of Dun Laoghaire Council and here is the section on their website.

http://www.dlrcoco.ie/parks/cemeteries/general.htm

I am sure they will take a postal request. There was a staffing problem in the office at Deansgrange and it was difficult to get replies but, I think that has been temedied.

Try
Deansgrange Cemetery,
Deansgrange Road,
Blackrock,
Co Dublin,

Ahem, Maryb,
It would help if we had a name and, if possible, a more precise address and the name of any immediate relatives who outlived her.

The only one I recall was Mary Kelly
12 years old. 128 Townsend Street. Buried in Dean’s Grange Cemetery
Died April 30th at Lombard Street, of a gunshot wound. Her father was a Pte Kelly. I know Jay had written something about the girl in Deansgrange on here but it seems to be gone. dontknow I'm really looking forward to reading the book Holla, I'm just hanging on to buy it till after Crimbo just in case I get it my Christmas Stocking ;)

PS Jamie has Lecture in the Lexicon on the 28th Jan at 7pm about Deansgrange and The Rising ;)

Holla,

I think I remember something like that from Jamie's talk, but, can't remember.

Here is a good list of civilians killed on the Irish Medals site.

Don't forget to mark in your 2016 diary,

Jamie Moran's talk "Deansgrange Cemetery and the dead of the 1916 Rising"
7pmto 9pm Thursday 28th January,
dlr Lexicon, Moran Park, Dun Laoghaire (thats the new library to you and me).

Anyone who took his cemetery walk will know how much research he has put into his work. Should be special.

Like you Holla I only made that mistake once never again, I bought 36 yellow roses for 15e in the supermarket on Christmas Eve, why doesn't the cemetery have a small flower shop/stall dontknow
