    Nice photos Gnomie. This of course is 19 Abercromby Square, How nice it looks without the brickwork painted. Noel Chavasse's father was the second Bishop of Liverpool and the house was the Bishop's Palace. It had been built ca 1864 originally for Charles Prioleau, the Liverpool representative of the US Confederate States during their civil war. Internally the building has many features reflecting the southern confederate states. It was converted in the early 1880s as the Bishop's Palace for the first Church of England Bishop of Liverpool, Bishop Ryle.

    For those who have an interest in such things, Bishop Ryle and his wife are buried side by side at All Saints Churchyard, Childwall.

    I was in Belgium last week and was able to find Noel Chavasse's grave in Brandhoek New Cemetery, which is just outside Ypres. Judging by the amount of crosses which are planted on his grave, it receives quite a few visits.

    I also visited the Liverpool Scottish Stone, which marks their jumping off position on the attack at Hooge in 1915. In France I took a picture of the memorial commemorating the capture of Montauban from the Germans by the Kings Liverpool and Manchester regiments on the disastrous 1st July 1916. They were two of the few regiments which achieved their objective on that day.

    Thanks for posting this photo birdseye. I feel it's very important that such men as Noel Chavasse should continue to be remembered. For those of you that have relatives who were killed in action in WW1 and later and wish to see a photo of their grave, have a look at the following web site:

    http://www.britishwargraves.org.uk/

    This project is attempting to record photographically all known British War graves. Most of the dead buried in Liverpool have already had their war grave photographed and which are available through the web site

    Wonderful images and information in this thread. Thank you all who have contributed.

    Tony, I found a relative, Eric Matchett, on the war graves site, so many thanks for that link. He is buried in Toxteth Park Cemetery and was a corporal in the Royal Welch Fusiliers when he was killed on September 14, 1940 at age 23.

    Hi Tony

    Yes I would be curious to see it. It sounds as if he was the son of my maternal great grandfather who married twice. The chap who was killed, Eric Matchett, belonged I think to the "other" side of the family after my g-g-grandfather married his second wife.
