The representative- a lady- of that body who was on duty when I last visited was rude and officious, shouting at anyone trying to take photographs...

    You'd be much better off visiting one of the other great Victorian cemeteries when you next visit the capital. I particularly love Kensal Green ("For there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen; Before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green". G K Chesterton).

    It's beautiful, vast and rambling- and there aren't any bossy boots telling you what to do or where to go (or not). The list of famous people there is impressive- Charles Babbage, Blondin, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Wilkie Collins, Marcus Garvie, Harold Pinter, William Makepeace Thackeray, Anthony Trollope, not to mention a daughter of Winston Churchill and two children of King George III- oh, and Freddie Mercury was cremated here...

    Brompton Cemetery is pretty wonderful too, with an equally distinguished population- Samuel Cunard, Brian Glover, Bernard Levin, Emmeline Pankhurst etc etc..

    Valerie from the U.S.
    Dover Street was at the rear of the Liverpool Infirmary which was about one mile from the city centre or "downtown" as you would call it. The church of St Michael's in the Hamlet was a few miles south of here in the Toxteth Park district of the city. If the person you are looking for was buried in Toxteth Park municipal cemetery then you may be able to find their grave by searching this indexed site:

    http://www.toxtethparkcemetery.co.uk/

    There were however other now defunct cemeteries closer to Dover Street, namely Low Hill & St James cemeteries. I believe their burial records are held at Liverpool Record Office but finding individual records is a slow process as they are not indexed. Good luck!

    Good site Steve. great info.

    just a snippet from ‘Liverpool Heroes’ book 1

    …'John Kirk may have suffered from narcolepsy,which causes drowsiness and could well have been the cause of his problems rather than drunkeness’


    Whatever it was a sad life for John

    Yes, I have heard this but it was never proven. Indeed a sad end
    I know the curator of his regiment museum, so she sent me all
    the records and the photo,s of his VC which they hold.

    Liverpool may not be able to boast a Jim Morrison, but it does have 60's crooner Michael Holliday.

    And while Highgate is the well-known final resting place of Karl Marx, Liverpool has its own renowned socialist writer.

    Liverpool's cemeteries are an "untapped tourist resource" according to Cllr Berni Turner, executive member for heritage and environment. more

    Who lies in a Liverpool's Cemetaries then?

    St James's cemetery

    William Taylor Barry - United States senator, Governor of Kentucky and Postmaster General of the US.

    Colonel Thomas Colby - head of the Ordnance Survey

    Sarah Biffin - armless dwarf artist who painted portraits of British monarchs and befriended Charles D!ckens.

    Edward Rushton - blind anti-slavery campaigner. Formed the Liverpool School for the Blind.

    Captain John Oliver - served on the Victory with Nelson at Trafalgar.

    Captain Elisha Lindsay Halsey - stabbed to death by his ship's cook, John Kent of Liverpool, who successfully pleaded self-defence.

    Catherine 'Kitty' Wilkinson - set up the first city washhouse as a cholera epidemic raged.

    William Harrison - first captain of the Brunel-built iron ship the Great Eastern. The main mast stands out-side The Kop.

    William Lynn - father of the Grand National.

    A mausoleum marks the final resting place of William Huskisson, Liverpool MP and the first person to be killed by a train when run over by Stephenson's Rocket at the opening of the Liverpool-Manchester line in 1830.

    Walton cemetery

    Robert Tressell - writer of The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. In August 1910, he travelled to Liverpool to arrange passage to Canada, but he was admitted to the Royal Infirmary where he later died of TB-related illnesses. He was buried in Walton cemetery in 1911, opposite the prison, in a grave with 12 other 'paupers'.

    The grave was not located until 1970 when money raised by local socialists paid for an engraved headstone, now badly weathered.

    James William Carling - illustrated many of Edgar Allen Poe's works.
    West Derby cemetery

    James Glanister
    - survived The Charge of the Light Brigade.

    There is also the grave of a man killed on the Titanic.

    Anfield cemetery

    Michael Holliday - singer in the 60s who had a number one hit with Story Of My Life and provided the voice of sheriff Tex Tucker from the series Four Feather Falls. Buried under his real name, Norman Alexander Milne.

    James Maybrick - cotton merchant suspected of being Jack the Ripper. His wife was convicted of his murder by poisoning.

    William Wallace - "The Man From The Pru" successfully appealed after being found guilty of the murder of his wife. The murder remains a mystery.

    Michael James Whitty - first head constable of Liverpool police and fire brigade, went on to found the ECHO's sister paper, the Daily Post.

    Some famous names in Anfield include Alf Garnett, Jimmy Tarbuck, Tommy Cooper, Billy Connolly and Jimmy Hill though they are not the celebrity ones.

    There is also a young man called Dolphin Fish.

    Toxteth cemetery

    James Dunwoody Bulloch - Shipping agent for the confederates in the American civil war who bought ships built in Lairds.

    James Picton - architect and surveyor who gave the city Wavertree's Picton clock.

    Samuel Graves - famous Liverpool MP commemorated by a statue in St George's Hall.

    Sir John Bent - owner of Bents' brewery.

    We've since found we can add John Alexander Brodie to the Anfield Cemetery famous people list.

    The 75th anniversary of John Mckenna's death is next Tuesday. LFC's website doesn't mention the exact date, but it was 22/3/1936 (information from headstone in Toxteth Park cemetery)

    And then there's the eminent, but little-known, 17th century astronomer Jeremiah Horrocks, whose work on planetary orbits was up there with Kepler. He is supposed to have been buried at the Ancient Chapel of Toxteth, possibly inside it, but there is no gravestone.

    I've heard there are some graves dating from 18th century in Anfield Cemetery, so well before the cemetery was opened. Would they have been part of the Priory grounds?
