There are two types of Plot Transfers, application forms for both are available at the bottom of the page
Often a family member may wish to transfer right of burial of a plot from a deceased relative into their own name. To do this a form needs to be completed and returned to the Cemeteries section, accompanied by a solicitors or Commissioners for Oaths letter confirming details.
This occurs when a ‘living’ person with a right of burial in a plot wishes to assign the right of burial to somebody else. The below form needs to be completed and returned to the Cemeteries section accompanied by the original Grant of Right of Burial.
All stonework in Cork City Cemeteries (erection or replacement of headstones, erection or replacement of kerbing where permitted) must be undertaken by approved contractors. The contractor must make the application to City Council on behalf of the client. Below is the list of approved stonemasons.
