    Belfast City Cemetery | 511 Falls Rd, Belfast BT12 6DE

    Belfast City Cemetery is one of the oldest public graveyards in Belfast, and the city’s first municipal burial ground.  Before its opening on 1 August, 1869, most other local cemeteries were owned by religious denominations.

    Situated in West Belfast, around 226,000 people are buried here, including many of Belfast’s wealthiest families. Victorian, Edwardian and 20th century tastes in design and architecture are reflected in its headstones and monuments.

    Although it is a cross-denominational graveyard, there is an underground wall separating Protestant and Roman Catholic areas, and a section for Belfast’s Jewish residents.

    There are no new plots available in the cemetery, but burials still take place in existing graves.

    Excellent Tour. Women buried in Belfast who have been side-lined given the prominent place they deserve. Their accomplishments reconise and given a voice.

    Great to hear about the, often hidden, histories of some of the women of Belfast.
