    I’ve been researching Powerscourt for quite a a while. No mater where I search, trying to find our exactly where the “Family Burial Plot” is, no one mentions it. Most of my search is hampered by info on the “Pet Cemetary” I am keen to find out more about, and potential access to the graves of Richard Wingfield 5th. and his two wives. Lady Jocelyn and Lady Theodosia Anne Howard. Tragically, all of these people and many of their relatives died early deaths. I was baffled by that for a long time, until I discovered the cause was consumption, or TB, as we call it today.

    The graveyard you appear to be searching for is separated from the main gardens by a wall near the Pepperpot Tower. Alternatively, the road to “The Killing Hollow” about quarter mile before the main house.
    also borders the cemetery.
