    • Find a specific death notice

      On the   home page   you have a few options to help you find the notice you are looking for: 

       

       

      If   you   only  know  the  surname   of the deceased, enter that into the "surname" field and click "search".  This returns all notices matching that surname published in the last 7 days.  Change the "from" and "to" dates, as necessary.



      If  you  know  the  surname  and  county  of  the  deceased,   enter both and click "search"  This returns all notices matching that surname,  for  that  county,   published in the last 7 days.  Change the "from" and "to" dates, as necessary.


       

      If  you  are   looking  for  a  specific  notice,  published  during  a  specific  date  range  enter the information you know into the search boxes, e.g. surname, county, then select the date range using the "from" and "to" calendars. In the example below, I want to see all notices published for the period Jan  1st  2013  to Sept.  12th  2013  matching the surname "Jones" from County "Dublin": 

       

        

       

       

      You can bookmark the page(s) that you visit most regularly, such as deaths in your county, so that the next time you visit RIP.ie, you will be taken straight to that page. For example, if you are interested only in  death  notices  from  Co.  Kildare, then select that county from the County dropdown menu and click search (see below). Then bookmark this page in the usual way.

       


      Clicking the "Death Notices" tab on the  home page, gives a all list of  Recently Published Notices on RIP.ie,  that is, notices published today and yesterday, as well as some notices for funerals that are still ongoing and notices where the arrangements have yet to be confirmed. 

       

      On this page you also have the same search options as on the Home Page as well as the option to "sort" according to any of the column heading - simply by clicking on the heading you wish to sort by, such as "name", "town", "county" or "date published". 

       

       

    • How far back do your records go?

      Our records go back to July 2006. All notices placed on RIP.ie are archived on the site and can be found by searching: surname, county, town or date range. The only information we have available is that which is given on the site.

       
      Please note, we are not funeral directors and have no direct contact with the bereaved family. The only way to guarantee that a notice appears on RIP.ie is if the funeral director  publishes the notice on the site.

    • Publish a death notice

      To publish a death notice on RIP.ie, simply ask your funeral director to do so.  This is a free service to bereaved families and all funeral directors in Ireland have secure access to the site for the purpose of publishing death notices for funerals which they are undertaking.

       

      In cases where, for example, a funeral is taking place abroad, the family can contact RIP.ie directly and we will liaise with the funeral director who is handling the arrangements.

       

      Given the sensitive nature of the information on RIP.ie, we cannot accept notices directly from the public. Similarly, we cannot make changes to a notice published on the site by a funeral director, such changes can only be made by the funeral director.
