Glasnevin Cemetery, trick question


Recommended Posts

If you go to the CWGC and download the readout for Glasnevin Cemetery for WW1 period you will get 176 names. The question is- How many

graves are there for these men in this cemetery?

Does the new CWGC website allow the user to differentiate between graves versus those commemorated on memorials?

Dunno Tom,

But it's up to 188 Great War names now.

 

188 on the CWGC search, although 3 are in the C o I  Churchyard.

But the CWGC blurb says  "There are 174 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war".

 

Am I close?

Good question Dai. I am working with IFCP and that number has increased within the past year or so due to names accepted by IFCP. I am also working on those who died after discharge that do not qualify and this will add another 100 or so. The cut off date will be the same as the CWGC 06/08/1914 to 31/08/1921 though. The ones accepted by IFCP from me have not yet been added to the CWGC. It can take years for them to be added. having said all that with those not accepted by IFCP and those accepted by IFCP it stands at 252 at the moment but will rise by many more withing the next two months. Deans Grange is another that have lots of new ones to be added.
