    I haven't heard this one but I'd be very surprised if the rumour were true. The cemetery is still in use and is full of listed monuments.

    Toxteth Park Cemetery. I haven't heard anything. I'll look out for any notices. I can't think of where any new buildings would go, unless they demolish the derelict buildings at the Northern end.
    There are a about dozen Grade II Listed Buildings within the cemetery, though that means nothing to the Council.

    I was told that an article was in a Wirral newspaper, developers want it for land and there was recently a study about how much it would cost to remove the graves. The report concuded that it would indeed be too much.

    First they cut down all the big trees, then ripped out all the holly bushes. Surely they can't dig up the graves next as well.
