Mapping of Sacred Heart & Mt. St. Oliver Cemeteries

5 Jul 2024

Mapping of Sacred Heart and Mt St Oliver Cemeteries.


The Parish of Clones has been given a grant to record both cemeteries here in the town (Sacred Heart Cemetery and Mt. St. Oliver Cemetery). It will be wonderful for many families to be able to pinpoint exactly where their relatives are buried.


Irish Graveyards will be carrying out this work but we will also need your input.  There are unmarked plots and it is our hope, with your help, to get as many of these as possible identified.


The survey of each graveyard starts with the numbering and mapping of each grave, this has already been done using a combination of GPS and eye mapping. Digital maps of both graveyards have been compiled as well as individual pictures of each headstone.  These maps also have the names listed, showing the surname, first name, address, month and year of death and age at time of death together with the plot number.

You can access these on the following website

When on the website click on SEARCH, then on the next page use the drop-down boxes to select

Co Monaghan and the cemetery you want to view.  You can email the Parish Office if you want to add information or amend an entry or you can use the amendment forms which will be available at the back of Sacred Heart Church.


We will also display the Maps in Sacred Heart Church along with the lists of those buried in both cemeteries.  Over the next two weeks we ask you to check your own family plot, and the corresponding names.


If there are any errors in spelling, dates, missing names, there will be correction sheets available beside the maps.  These can be returned via the parish envelope collection baskets, dropped into the parcel box beside the office or directly into the office during opening hours.  Also, any local information on unmarked graves would be most welcome. This information will then be added to the original survey.


Once finished a stainless-steel information board containing the maps and names will be erected in both cemeteries and all information will be available on Irish Graveyards Website.


Please do take time to check on this as we are fast approaching Blessing of the Graves on 01/09/24 and it is our intention to have these maps erected in both cemeteries for this and we do not want any family to be disappointed if information is incorrect or incomplete. 


This will also be a great source of information for those researching family history, so we ask you to share this post with family and friends both in Ireland and further afield.


Note: Deadline for amendments/additions is 15/07/24.
