Burial Register St James Church and inscriptions of local graveyards, Durrus

Pre 1880 families would have used Moulivard Burial Grounds and some still do. In the last 50 years burials included a Shannon woman from Moulivard her maiden name was also Shannon from Rossmore so presumably she was buried in her own family plot. Other local graveyards include the old Kilcrohane about 1 mile west of the village used by local Protestant families in the 19th century including the Swantons. Also the old Caheragh graveyard and Keelcangle on the Durrus/Toormore Road used by families on the Mizen side of Durrus: (updated)
