Graveyard records are an important tool for genealogists, people researching their own family history and historians in general. Of about 400 graveyards in Co. Kilkenny, the Archaeological Society hold about 100 collected since the 1970s. Some of them have been digitized already and are available as pdf-files. Those were digitized by the archiving volunteers in 2017 with the aid of funding from Kilkenny County Council. See the file on the Digitization Project for details. Since then, other organisations have collected records from gravestones in cemeteries in Co. Kilkenny, sometime overlapping with KAS’ work. It is therefore worthwhile checking all records for a certain graveyard. Please also visit Historic Graves for gravestone records and photographs.

You will find an overview of all graveyards in Co. Kilkenny below. In it, you will find information on the name, and the shelf no. in KAS’ library. If the records have been digitized already, you will find a link to the file or an external website. This work has being done by enthusiastic volunteers in anticipation of  future interest. If this  website has been of help to you, please consider a donation to the organisation behind the digitization or contributing in collecting graveyard records yourself and thus preserving our heritage.
