  1. I am looking for the grave of my grandmother, Mary Anne Nolan/Byrne, who died 29th October 1943. She died if the County Home in Carlow. She did have a husband, Joseph Byrne, who I think disowned her. MaryAnne died of TB. I found her death cert but cannot find where she was buried.

    I hope you can help me.
