The Magdalene Name Project

Justice for Magdalenes has compiled lists of women's names who died in Magdalene Laundries, as well as gravesite photos and other documents for many institutions, including The Bethany Home.

We have also compiled 1911 census data for many of the laundries; although, please note that in many cases very little data is supplied by the religious orders — for some laundries, only initials were supplied for the census (further reinforcing the societal notion that these women were not even "worthy" of a full name for the census). Names (where provided) are alphabetised. Visit the links below for each gravesite or relevant 1911 census data. If you recognize a name as that of a family member of lost loved one, please click on the name or e-mail us about a name to advise us.

If you think you may have lost a loved one to a Magdalene Laundry elsewhere in Ireland, please e-mail us and let us now the name, age (approximate), and Laundry where the individual was incarcerated.
