The powers and duties of Local Authorities in relation to Burial Grounds are derived, in the first instance, from the Public Health (Ireland) Act, 1878 (Part III), as amended by the Local Government (Sanitary Services) Act, 1948 and, more recently, the Local Government Act, 1994 .

The main rules for burial grounds are set out in the Rules & Regulations for the Regulation of Burial Grounds 1888 and amendments made to these rules in 1919, 1929 and 2013.
