    Is there a list of online burial registers (not findagrave) covering period 1910 to 1921 for the 26 counties please?
    Any help with this would be most welcome.
    Thanking you very much in advance.

    I think the short answer is no.

    Burial registers for some areas have been uploaded but there isn't a single resource covering all 26 counties.

    What area/s are you most interested in?

    There is a directory of all graveyards for Dublin here:

    https://databases.dublincity.ie/graveyards/search.php

    Findagrave, Billion Graves, Historic Graves and Interment.net all have coverage.

    Don't forget the IGP Archives as well.

    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.

    pretty sure that the Pro-Cathedral and Westland row dont have a graveyard attached, although heard there as some in under the Pro-Cathedral, think just prominent people, bishops etc

    They'll most likely be in Glasnevin.

    South Dublin - Deansgrange and Shanganagh are really up to date. Burials usually appear on the site within a couple of weeks.

    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...

    Well, different administrative divisions. I happen to know they've changed archivist in Fingal this year so maybe things will change.

    Outsourcing to Everafter is great for us but there may be downsides that are not obvious.

    Error above - It is Dun Laoghaire & Rathdown Council that outsourced the online records for Deansgrange and Shanganagh, apologies.

    What does membership of Discovereverafter give you? Any photos of the graves?

    No photos (that I've seen at least) burial details name, date of death, date of burial, plus images of their burial registers, you can also see details of others in the same plot along with grid references to the plots.

    I've come across some headstone photos for more recent burials - say, the last twenty years or so.
