Cruicetown Cemetery Conservation Committee, in Nobber, County Meath, formed in 2004 to maintain and preserve the cemetery and research its history.
The well maintained church structure contains the monument and vault of the Anglo-Norman Cruise family who gave their name to the townland, an early baptismal font, excellent stone carvings and recumbent effigies of family members.
The cemetery includes recorded burials from the 18th century, ancient memorials, the foundations of a bellcote and a carved “Ring” highcross, depicting the Crucifixion on one side with the Virgin and Child on the other.
A newly erected Interpretive Panel provides an interesting genealogical and local history aspect to the event.
Cruicetown Cemetery Conservation Committee has researched 470 burials in the graveyard and members have collected relevant information from relatives of those interred there.
