    I think All Saint's was the first church in Speke.

    All Saint's Church, Hale Road/Speke Church Road, Speke. Consecrated 21 June 1876.
    Architect: John Loughborough Pearson (1817-1897).

    St Michael's Church, Garston was the parish church for Speke until All Saints , Speke was built. There are several memorials to the Norris and Watt families of Speke Hall at St Michael's Church.
