    Default Church on Mount Vernon street

    Hi


    ADVERTISING




    Does anyone know what happened to The Church of Our Lady of Mercy on Mount Vernon St? I'm assuming that it was demolished for expansion of the University Hospital.

    Thanks

    It must have been-both sides of the street are hospital car parks and outbuildings. There's only sacred heart church left in that immediate area,and st mary's up the hill.

    Hi
    Thank you both. I've been of a bit of an internet wild goose chase trying to find the whereabouts of The Church of Our Lady of Mercy where my husband's ggrandparents were married. Just to confuse things, I found the Liverpool Area RC Marriage Index gave the church as Sacred Heart.
    As the church was demolished, the records must have transferred to Sacred Heart.
    Another little family history mystery solved! I wish all the places I'm searching had such brilliant forums like this and Merseyside Genealogy & History.

    Default Mount Vernon Street (1936 directory).

    There was a convent called "Mount Vernon Convent of the Sisters of Mercy" and next door was "St Joseph's Select School" (Conducted by Sisters of Mercy). These were between Curzon Street and Bernard Street.
    Were marriages held in Convents (apart from Brides of Christ)?

    Hi

    Perhaps it was a large church that had a convent attached. The marriage was in 1882 so going back quite a bit. Something else I must look up when I visit Liverpool to dig through archives.

    Cheers
    Val
