Hook Church Cemetery
County Wexford, Ireland

Slade Village
Hook Head Ireland.

A plaque on the gate reads. St. Dubhan's Church. A Welsh monk named Dubhan established a monastery on this site in the 5th century and the peninsula became known as Rinn Dubhain. As Dubhain also means hook this was later anglicized as Hook Head.

The Monastery was called St. Saviours of Rinndeauan This medieval parish church of Hook dates to the 13th or 14th century. It consists of a nave with a double belfry and a somewhat later chancel. A number of interesting stone walls survive.

I walked this cemetery in June of 2002, reading all existing headstones.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
