Graveyard transcriptions have a common format, they are either listed alphabetically or as they are laid out in the graveyard. Thay give the names mentioned on the stone, transcribers normally transcribe only those stones which pre-date 1901 and stones which lie in the same plot and carry post 1901 dates tend to be included.

However, one transcriber stands out above all others in this county – or has done in the past and that is Mr. Richard Henchion of Cork. I know how long it can take to simply transcribe one small graveyard to the format above. The amount of time, energy and devotion which Mr. Henchion must have given to his works that I have seen cannot possibly be imagined. People in Ireland who transcribe graveyards get no monetary reward, at times there is some government funding available. In general, those who do this, do it for the pleasure they get from it.

Mr. Henchion has described the graveyards he has transcribed and for the most part has given family histories or local lore to go with the names on the stones. You can see the years of publication here. This list is incomplete and that will be corrected.
