    Anfield Cemetery is on Priory Road but as far as I know there was no ancient priory in the area. I stand to be corrected though.

    Thanks Chris, I don't live too far away........I thought there was a Priory hence Priory Road. My elderly neighbour remembers reading something about it too a while back and said there are graves dating from 18th century. ( I also stand to be corrected!)

    Hi Lizzie

    I believe from my study of local history there would not have been a priory or other monastic institution in that area. The closest would have been Birkenhead Priory, Burscough Priory and Norton Abbey near Runcorn. The Victorians were very fond of using medieval or ancient sounding names, and of course you have Fountains Road up your way named after Fountains Abbey and other street names after abbeys as well I think.

    as far as I know there are no 1700,s graves that are marked, there were
    graves moved from other cems, but again they are unmarked.
    The Cem opened in 1863 and margaret place was 1st to be buried.
    There was a building on the site as when they dig a new grave often
    bits of stone come up. They have just started to use section CE16 by
    the cherry lane entrance and when they were clearing the area they
    removed huge blocks of stone

    I don't think so. All the bits of buildings were afaik the old walton priory which
    stood on the site, and the bits of the two demolished chapels.
    The stones Liz mentioned are very much like the markers that are on the
    corners of paths and roads. When they opened up the new section CE16
    by the cherry lane coach entrance, they moved huge blocks of stone.I
    mentioned walton priory but as yet have not found any pic,s as portcities
    Liverpool site don't work. It was mentioned that the chambre hardman
    collection had a pic, but again no joy.

    So there was a priory,then! I just remember some large pieces of stonework,at the back of the cemetery,and meant to revisit,after it was mentioned on here,but no need now!

    I'd been told there was.......... then was told there wasn't!
    Worth going to see the 18th century gravestones I mentioned Steve, there are quite a few.

    Hi Liz

    yes I have been to CE6 a few times and found a good few. There are also a good few
    from early 19th century,ie,1805,1806, which considering the cem wasn't there then.
    It was started in 1856 and finished 1863 when the 1st burial of Margaret Place took
    place, makes me think that either, there was a building with it's own churchyard,. or
    they were moved from another cem. Priory Road is or was in the walton on the hill
    township. All great fun

    As you say there are a few but I suspect there are a lot more under the turf.

    So sad reading some of the children's headstones...................but at least with they have something to be remembered by. What about the children of the poor who died in great numbers?

    Anyone know, where were the pauper's graves in Liverpool ?

    Hi
    If you look in CE9 there are some double headstones which are the
    graves of children from the seamans orphanage, as for paupers
    graves I doubt you will find any as such as most would have been
    buried in public unmarked plots. If a person is buried in a public
    grave it is usualy with about 5 others, if at a later date a stone is
    put up for that person, all in the plot have to be mentioned. If you
    look at John Kirk,VC he was in a public grave and when his stone
    went up, all the others are listed

    Yoko probably has them. His mum, Julia is in Allerton, just a simple
    wooden unmarked cross and a small concrete cat.
