This Cemetery which is in the care of Fermanagh District 
Council is at the top of Rossole Road, and is not to be 
confused with that at Rossorry Parish Church (Church of 
Ireland). Both Catholics and Protestants are buried here. 
The new parish church at Rossorry was first used for 
services in April 1840 though it was more than a year later 
when the church was finally consecrated by Bishop Tottenham 
and it was 1842 before the first burial took place in the 
new cemetery. [William Johnston, of Willoughby Place, 
Portora was buried  1 February 1842 aged 30 years.]

During this visit I completed reading several stones which 
had been giving me problems and also uncovered a number of  
previously unrecorded stones. There are still a few 
inscriptions to be fully deciphered and the possibility 
remains of locating others. There are also some interesting 
crests and symbols which also should be copied.

Relevant newspaper notices have been included as well as 
several which may refer to the families of, if not the 
actual individuals named on stones.

Following a visit to the Public Record Office of Northern 
Ireland 26 October 2000 where the Church of Ireland burial 
register is available on microfilm (MIC 1/22) I have added 
many entries in italics covering the years 1799 to 1840. In 
the early years this register is impossible to read in 
places and does not appear to be complete. However after 
1824 the legibility greatly improves and I have included all 
entries except those of which were difficult to read with
