Purchase & Price of Plots
Plots are only available for immediate burial and must be purchased through an undertaker. Plots are not available to purchase in some cemeteries, contact your undertaker or cemetery registrar for details.
Plots are priced at €1,830 for an internal plot and €2,030 for an external plot. Burial charges vary by cemetery.
There are two types of Plot Transfers:
Transfer of Grant of Right of Burial (from deceased to living)
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 Recreation, Cemeteries & Sport Section Division, accompanied by a solicitors or Commissioners for Oaths letter confirming details.
Assignment of Right of Burial
This occurs when a ‘living’ person with a right of burial in a plot wishes to assign the right of burial to somebody else. A form needs to be completed and returned to Recreation, Cemeteries & Sport Division accompanied by the original Grant of Right of Burial.
