Goldenbridge Cemetery

Set on just two acres of land, Goldenbridge incorporates many of the classical features that were to dominate the 19th century. Its delineated pathways and high walls create an oasis of tranquility in what is now the heart of a busy suburb.

Goldenbridge is a 19th century ‘garden’ cemetery. After the passing of the 'Act of Easement of Burial Bills' in 1824 a committee was established to administer the proposed cemetery. The cemetery was purchased in 1828 and the first burial took place on the 15th October of that year.

Columbarium Wall

The columbarium allows the placing of cremated remains into niches, each with a front section incorporating a Limestone memorial plaque.  The cremated remains are placed behind the Limestone plaque in urns which are specifically designed for this purpose.  The memorial plaque is engraved with an inscription. Each niche accommodates one or two cremated remains.  Families may visit the Cemetery to choose a niche that best suits or our experienced staff will make the selection on your behalf.  At the time of cremation, it is possible to reserve spaces in the Columbarium Wall alongside a family member.  If you would like to learn more, please contact Mark O'Neill by telephone on 01 8826500 or by email on [email protected]
