David J Quigley prepared cemetery and crematorium indexes, and cemetery plans, in the early 2000s, and published them as PDFs and images on CDs. He recorded burials up to the year 2000.
Much of his work has been superceded by the "Friends" organisations mentioned above, and up to date information on more recent burials can be obtained from Bereavement Services.
Nevertheless the information that he collated relating to a number of the cemeteries and the crematorium, may still be of use. The links below give the indexes he perepared, and the sketch plans.
The Indexes are presented in alphabetic order by surname. They can be searched using your browser Ctrl + F find feature.
The plans are fairly low resolution, but can be useful in trying to locate a plot.
We do still have the Quigley indexes and plans for the other cemeteries and the crematorium. Let us know if you would like to see these. but they are more of a historic curiosity than the information provided by Bereavement Services and the "Friends" organisations.
