Glasnevin Cemetery's Easter Rising Necrology

From Glasnevin Cemetery ( in Dublin:

Our 1916 Easter Rising Necrology research suggests 485 people were killed in the Easter Rising.
This list researched by Glasnevin Trust shows 485 men, women and children killed during or as a direct result of the 1916 Rebellion.

The story of Glasnevin Cemetery and those buried here is central to the history of the 1916 Rebellion. The full significance of this list will be further explored in the 1916 Rebellion Centenary Exhibition at Glasnevin Cemetery Museum. We hope you will join with us and support us in telling that story.

Additional information on all of the names listed is currently held by Glasnevin Cemetery Museum. We would like people who are related to, or have information on those listed, to get in contact with us so we can further expand these stories in advance of our exhibition and events to mark the centenary of the Rebellion.

We need your help.
We are asking the public who may have relatives killed in the Easter Rising to contribute to the Necrology. Please use form on our website to submit any information.

If you have already submitted a form and haven't yet heard from us, please contact Historian and Curator, Conor Dodd at the museum on +353 (0)1 882 6550 or email

(With thanks to Glasnevin Cemetery)
