Cork City Council manages four Municipal Cemeteries:
Plots are only available for sale in St. Catherines Cemetery and St. Michaels Cemetery for immediate burial. No plots are available in St. Finbarr’s and St. Josephs Cemetery.
|St. Michael’s New||€1,730||€1,925 *|
*There are currently no external plots available in St. Michael’s New Cemetery.
The above prices relate to a single 9ft x 4ft plot. Normally, a plot can accommodate three burials, subject to conditions.
Plots can be purchased:
A Conditions form needs to be filled up by the purchaser, when a Right of Burial is being purchased. This form outlines cemetery rules and conditions that the purchaser must accept on purchase of the right of burial.
Payment can be made by cash or cheque.
Deeds are issued approximately 6 to 8 weeks after purchase.
There are two types of Plot Transfers:
Often a family member may wish to transfer right of burial of a plot from a deceased relative into their own name. To do this a form needs to be completed and returned to Recreation, Cemeteries & Sport Section Division, accompanied by a solicitors or Commissioners for Oaths letter confirming details.
This occurs when a ‘living’ person with a right of burial in a plot wishes to assign the right of burial to somebody else. A form needs to be completed and returned to Recreation, Cemeteries & Sport Division accompanied by the original Grant of Right of Burial.
If an original Deed has been lost, the person who is the named Right of Burial holder can apply for a Duplicate Deed, as per form below.
Applications for Exhumation Licenses are administered by the Cemeteries Section of the Environment & Recreation Directorate in Cork City Council.
