A significant decision you need to make is whether your loved one is to be buried or cremated.


If you choose a burial, you may need to purchase a new grave or re-open an existing one. An existing family grave normally accommodates 3-4 adult burials, depending on the cemetery.

Where a new grave is required we will, for those cemeteries that offer a choice of location, arrange for the family to meet the cemetery’s representatives to select a new grave.

New graves are available in most Cork cemeteries, details of which are available in our Information section.


If you choose a cremation, the Rocky Island Crematorium is located in Ringaskiddy near Cork City.

We will co-ordinate the additional documentation which needs to be completed and signed before a cremation takes place.

We can also provide you with assistance in the selection of a final resting place for the ashes.
