    Default Burial Ground on Smithdown Road?

    I have been looking on Toxteth.net today and it says there is (was) a quaker burial ground on Smithdown Road by ASDA.
    This has recently been built on with a new housing estate.
    Does anyone have any more info/pics?

    There is an old pic in one of Paul Bolger's Directories of Liverpool, but it's at a weird angle.

    The burial ground is still there. Entrance, usually locked, off Arundel Avenue, L17

    Blimy, the things you don't know about in Liverpool - any number of people could have simply walked past that without realising!
