Funeral Services

We strive to provide the best possible standard of service to families and loved ones during the difficult time of bereavement. Our experienced staff can meet you to advise you on best options for Grave Selection or select a beautiful headstone from our Monument Workshop. You can also find here answers to any questions you may have about burials and cremations. 

In Glasnevin Trust we recognise that burials and cremations constitute a critical service to the public and it is vital therefore that these activities continue during the COVID-19 pandemic. Equally, we must ensure that we protect our staff and we must also play our part in protecting the general public in delaying the spread of COVID-19.

The funeral director of your choice will also liaise with our Cemetery & Cremation offices to assist you as much as possible.

Cemetery design has changed over the ages. Pre-1900 Cemeteries, Victorian Garden Cemeteries, had large ornate structures, monuments, crypts and buildings with winding manicured pathways. Post 1900 cemeteries evolved to become a more landscaped area with smaller headstones in Lawn Cemeteries

Victorian Garden Cemetery: Goldenbridge and Glasnevin

Lawn Cemetery: Palmerstown, Dardistown and Newlands Cross

There are still new graves available in Glasnevin Cemetery, Ireland’s National Cemetery, as well as in our other cemeteries.
