"Major research work has revealed"
This list researched by Glasnevin Trust shows 485 men, women and children killed during or as a direct result of the 1916 Rebellion. Some of the names of those listed are well known, but the majority are the unknown dead of 1916. In many cases their names had been lost in the sands of time until now. Their stories tell the true history of the rebellion and what it meant for Ireland. We would like people who are related to, or have information on those listed, to get in contact with us so we can further expand these stories in advance of our exhibition and events to mark the centenary of the Rebellion. The names listed here will be engraved on a new memorial at Glasnevin Cemetery that will be unveiled on the centenary of the Rebellion.
We are asking the public who may have relatives killed in the Easter Rising to contribute to the Necrology.
