Irish Graveyard Surveyors have been commissioned by the parish to survey the parish graveyards. The survey consists of mapping the graveyards giving each plot a plot number and indexing the names of all that are interred in the graveyards showing Last name, First name, Address, Year of death, Age at death and plot number. The details of each interment have been taken from the inscriptions on the headstones. The draft version is on display in Cullies, Butlersbridge & Killygarry Cemeteries. Please take time to examine it and check the information for spelling mistakes. As I am sure you can understand that compiling a large number of interments there could be unintentional spelling errors. Alteration sheets are available from the Presbytery which will allow you to have any spelling mistakes corrected. The alterations sheets also allow you to enter details like townland, month of death, year of death or each at death that do not appear on the headstone. All alteration sheets must include a phone number and signature or the changes will not be made. Any queries that you may have please contact Irish graveyards at 087-2076248 between 9-9 Monday to Friday where they will be glad to help you in anyway.

CHY3 FORMS It would be much appreciated if you could sign and return the CHY 3 form if one was included with your receipt.
