Palmerstown Burials

    Opened in 1978, Palmerstown Cemetery reflects the urban setting and modern lawn-style design of the period. Featuring uniform border graves set across a broad expanse of land and surrounded by maturing trees, the cemetery is designed to capture a sense balance and serenity.


    How to Arrange a Burial

    There are no new burials spaces available in Palmerstown Cemetery, but burials may take place if there is an existing family plot. Our experienced staff are here to advise you, and if a family plot is available your next port of call is to contact a Funeral Director who will assist you in planning and ensure important documentation is provided in liaison with our staff. 

    Family Graves & Other Options
    Whilst burial options are only available to those with existing family plots, if you wish to lay a loved one to rest here and cremation is consistent with the wishes of the deceased, we offer a unique commemorative space for urns within the grounds of Palmerstown Cemetery. 

    If burial is the preferred option and you do not have an existing family plot in Palmerstown, we invite you to consider our cemeteries in Dardistown, Glasnevin, Goldenbridge and Newlands Cross, all of which have new burial spaces available. Please contact us to arrange an appointment or discuss your requirements.

    Columbarium Wall

    For those who have chosen to be cremated, the Colmbarium Wall at Palmerstown Cemetery provides a final resting place for loved ones and a peaceful space for families and friends to return to and honour their memory. 

    The wall contains a series of small niches, designed for the placement of an urn containing ashes of the deceased behind an engraved limestone memorial plaque. Families may visit the cemetery to select a niche, or our experienced staff will make the selection on your behalf. 

    Many families opt to gather and inter the ashes together in a ceremony. Niches may be reserved a the time of cremation alongside a family member. Please contact us for advice on how this option can be tailored to meet your requirements.
