Please remember that this is a historic cemetery. Many people did not have grave marker and some grave markers deteriorated over time and are difficult to read. Names of people who died abroad are often remembered on a family headstone. Names may be misspelled by the family, cemetery supervisor or the stonecarver.
This map will only identify graves with headstones or markers will not find a grave without a headstone. The transcribed Burial Register Transcriptions will show if a burial took place in Mount Saint Lawrence Old Cemetery. Limerick City Archives have made scanned burial registers for other Limerick City Cemeteries available online.
This data has been gathered by staff and students as a heritage and educational project. Transcription errors may happen, if you notice a transcription error you can contact via the feedback form.
