For people from inner city Dublin who died end of 1800s/early 1900s, how do I go about locating records for their graves? I looked at the databases for Dublin and obviously there's a good few in that area.
Some baptisms/marriages in the family took place in St. Mary's Pro-Cathedral, Church of St. Andrew and St. Michael and John's. I checked the first two on findagrave but no results.

Deansgrange & Shangannagh, Buried in Fingal

North Dublin - The most recent entry on the Buried in Fingal database is 2013 - no updates added since it was launched. Site says "more recent burials will be added once an appropriate amount of time has passed". With rip.ie being online I don't really understand that.

The answer is simple: money and staff to do it.

I don't agree, just different ways of doing things.
South Dublin County Council have outsourced the online records of their 2 big cemeteries to Everafter, a commercial site, who maintain records for several cemeteries in Ireland and overseas. SDCC must provide regular updates to Everafter, and this has resulted in up to date records online with free access to researchers.
Fingal do their own thing, have set up their own good site and also provide free access to researchers. However there is now a 7 year long backlog of records.
Where Fingal really score well is that they provide records for other cemeteries in their area.
I just find it strange that in Fingal, updates need an "appropriate" amount of time - 7 years so far... but a few kilometres south an appropriate amount of time seems to be the following month to internment...
