There are many burial grounds for which no burial registers survive; many burial grounds that are closed, or some that are not in the ownership of the local parish.

Local community groups and Solas (FÁS) have worked together to clean and record the information from headstones in a number of burial grounds throughout the City and County.

The information from this work has been collated and is made available by Waterford Libraries and Archives in a searchable online Grave Inscriptions Database.
