St. Otteran's Burial Ground

St. Otteran's Burial Ground, also known as Ballinaneeshagh Burial Ground, is operated by Waterford City & County Council. It was in use from the early 19th century but only enclosed and laid out in 1877. There were a number of burials prior to the attempt to provide a plan for the burial ground. There is no register for these earlier burials. The first 426 plots on the burial register were left blank in the hope that the 'Burial Board' could fill in the details later but this never occurred.

The first record from the burial register dates to 12th September 1862 and Waterford City and County Archive holds the original burial registers from 1862 until 1966 but there are some gaps. Unfortunately, burials did not always strictly adhere to the plan of burial plots laid out so further investigation may be required when searching for a plot found in the register.

The Burial Registers are very large files and downloading the full register may take some time. They have also been broken down into sections. Please note you can enlarge the text on the PDF document for clearer viewing, but some entries are faded in the original register and may be difficult to decipher. To search, you will need to open the index first to get the plot number and then open the PDF for the location of that plot number.
