Categorizing Cemeteries in Ireland

Please ensure when creating new categories that you follow this format: [[Category: Cemetery Name, Location, County]]. Please DO add 'County' before the county name thus for example: Category:Cruagh Cemetery, Rockbrook, County Dublin. It is important in Ireland to use the word County as many places names, even small villages, can be the same name as the county and this can lead to confusion. Existing categories may be changed.

Hi, can anyone help in respect of locating the Burial Registers for KIrkinriola Cemetery in Ballymena please? I am a Canadian WW1 researcher in England and trying to find the burial place for a WW1 Canadian soldier Pte Samuel McNeice (McNiece) who died on the 26th June 1919 in Antrim Rd, Ballymena, which was the home of his sister Ellen BARR (née McNeice). This war casualty is listed only on the Brookwood War Memorial Wall, in Surrey, but the CWGC has his burial place as 'Unknown'.

I have been searching for the grave (which will be unmarked and no headstone) for over 11 years now. However, at the time he died, it would have been usual to bury him somewhere fairly local to the place he died. His sister Ellen was a member of the Wellington Street Presbyterian Church in Ballymena (now demolished & rebuilt) but they had no graveyard of their own. I have tried every avenue to try to locate this man's last resting place so any help would be most appreciated. The Mid Antrim Council have widely investigated the cemeteries under their control, but have drawn a blank. I am now trying to work my way through all Ballymena Presbyterian and Church of Ireland Churchyards and other alternative burial grounds in the hope that I may at last solve this puzzle. Once the burial place is confirmed, I will be able to pass the information on to the CWGC, who will eventually erect a fitting headstone to this man. My website address is: www.canadianukgravesww1.co.uk if anyone is interested in my wider project. Thank you.

Hi John / Nat

Definitely in Rory's Glen townland. I will create the category for it in a few minutes.


I have a question about the location of the cemetery, when I create a category. I was creating a category for Kilwaughter Cemetery, which I know is located in Rory's Glen Townland, Kilwaughter Civil Parish, Antrim. This is near Larne. Someone (with a lot more Wikitree experience than me) edited it and moved it to Larne Town. I think the postal mailing address is Larne. A lot of the rural graveyards have mailing addresses of the nearest large town. Is it best to use the mailing address or townland/civil parish/county nomenclature?

Hi John,

That was me. This page has been orphaned by the Cemeterist Project, and there is no County Antrim team any longer. It's best to contact the person who did this, which is me!

I went by the map and looked at the towns/townlands in Antrim's categories. It's hard to tell by the Find a Grave map exactly where this cemetery lies. Now I have opened the page at townlands.ie, where there is a better map.https://www.townlands.ie/antrim/glenarm-upper/kilwaughter/kilwaughter/rorys-glen/

So, Rory's Glen has no category, so I suggest asking Ireland Project for help with that.https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:County_Antrim_Team

I also looked at the naming in this category:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Antrim%2C_Cemeteries

So, my advice is to ask someone on the County Antrim team for help figuring this out. The category can easily be renamed if it's needed.

Thanks, Natalie
