Military Historian Tom Burnell (author of ‘The War Dead’ series and ‘Irishmen in the Great War’) has compiled the burial sites of British soldiers in Co. Tipperary.
Complete with photographs of headstones and service information on each soldier, this thorough database of burial sites will be of great interest to anyone studying the genealogy of families with military links.
The Collection is searchable below and the soldiers’ dates of death range from 1914 to 1947. 43 different cemeteries are included and they are spread throughout Co. Tipperary. Tipperary Studies is most grateful to Tom for this, his latest wonderful presentation to our digital resources.
