Intro Text 

Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council operates and maintains cemeteries within its administrative area. Many of these cemeteries are already full and others have restrictions on the pre-purchase of burial plots i.e. graves are not available for purchase in advance of a death.

Please note that neither Dean’s Grange nor Shanganagh cemeteries records are computerised. We require the date/year of death or burial and the full name and last address of the deceased in order to locate a grave. We only hold records for Dean’s Grange, Shanganagh and Kilgobbin cemeteries.

Grave Purchase

Graves are available for purchase in Shanganagh and Deansgrange Cemeteries at time of death through a Funeral Director.  Plots are selected by the Council in accordance with the next available in line. 

Shanganagh Cemetery is a relatively new cemetery and there is good capacity for burials. Plots are available in St. Helens section of Shanganagh at a cost of €2,900 each at time of death through a Funeral Director.

Deansgrange Cemetery has been a burial ground since 1865 and is at capacity.  There are therefore, only a limited number of plots available in “The Garden” at a cost of €16,000.

Please see the summary of the revised charges applicable from 1st January 2018 in the related documents on this page.
