    Default Anfield Cemetery

    I'm going along to Anfield Cemetery for the 1st time tomorrow or Saturday to prepare for a walk I'm doing in the area. I want to find the location of famous or unusual graves such as Maybrick's, Alfred Lewis, Jem Mace, Michael Holliday, Major Lester, Michael James Whitty etc. It looks like it's a huge place and I wondered if there is a book at the cemetery which tells you where everyone is buried? I believe there is one at the Records Office but they are closed at the moment. Does anyone know if there is such a thing? Any help appreciated.

    Hi Steve

    I have emailed you but the email keeps bouncing back. I mailed steve.m1sb@tiscali.co.uk - is that correct?

    Thanks for showing me around today Steve - that was so useful and I would never have found those graves without you. You really are the Anfield Cemetery expert. It was much appreciated and so good of you to give up your time like that.
    Thanks once again

    Bert Balmer was cremated at Anfield Cemetery just for the record. I believe there is no plaque or stone.

    This sounds like an interesting visit. Maybe you should organise a regular tour Steve.

    I'd be interested in any details you may find Steve. He died on 2/5/70 and I think was cremated on 8/5/70.

    Sounds really interesting, how long have you been doing this Steve?

    How can you find out where your relatives are buried?
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

    Hi
    about 2 years. If a persons relative is in Anfield you need to know
    the section and plot number, ie CE12 594 which is church of england
    section 12 plot 594, you then get a section plot map and go looking.
    I can usually find a person as long as I have full name and date they
    died, sometimes it is hard work as the plot is unmarked.
    Can usualy do most cems in Liverpool as I do have the maps.
    This works for most cems.
    Have a look at my site

    www.liverpool-cemeteries.co.uk
    Still building it, not enough hours in the day

    An uncle of mine used to take me when he went to his mothers grave and we would go to my Gran's and put flowers for her and I missed her and do to this day even though I was just a kid when she died. I lived with her when I was about 5 or 6 as my parents both worked. Is it Anfield where you can hear the roar from both football stadiums?

    I have been on that Liverpool cemeteries site. My Grandmother was buried in her family plot as my Grandfather was Catholic and buried in a Catholic only cemetery, don't know where. He died when my father was a child. Silly isn't it, not to be buried together.

    Her name was Harriet Cook (nee Heron) and it was about 1956 I think
