Mystery of the O'Driscoll family
I have come across an O’Driscoll family, details as follows. Does anyone know of descendants of any of these mentioned. I can’t get to Cork myself as I am unable to travel and live in England. Any help would be appreciated, especially finding the parentage of William O’Driscoll born c1910 died 1979. He used to live at Spriggs Road, Cork. Does anyone know what relation he is to the people mentioned on his grave?
Thank you for any help with this.

Grave details - Gravestone is inscribed: (please note if you require the full dates please let me know)
