Burial or Cremation

A significant decision you need to make is whether your loved one is to be buried or cremated.


  • If you choose a burial, you may need to purchase a new grave or re-open an existing one. An existing family grave normally accommodates 4 adult burials, depending on the cemetery.
  • Where a new grave is required we will, for those cemeteries that offer a choice of location, arrange for the family to meet the cemetery  representatives to select a new grave.
  • New graves are available in most Kerry cemeteries, details of which are available.
  • Contact number for KCC burial grounds 066 718 3512


  • If you choose a cremation, the nearest is – the Rocky Island Crematorium which is located in Ringaskiddy near Cork City and Shannon Crematorium, Illaunmanagh, Shannon, Co. Clare.
  • We will co-ordinate the additional documentation which needs to be completed and signed before a cremation takes place.
  • We can also provide you with assistance in the selection of a final resting place for the ashes.
