    Default Toxteth Cemetery.

    Bird's eye view.
    It's surprising how different things look when you're on stilts!

    Great pic Philip. Always look eerie to me that cemetery. The very first post on this thread has James William Carling as being in West Derby cemetery though he's under the heading Walton cemetery with Robert Tressell. He is actually in Walton cemetery in a paupers grave.

    sad end for a very talented Scouser from Kirkdale.
    Proud Scouser, with a dabbling of Welsh and Irish.

    Default Cemetery for St. Michael's Toxteth?

    If someone attended St. Michael's, would they have been buried in Toxteth cemetery. They would have died in 1873 BTW.
    Also, is Dover Street anywhere near this area? The person actually died in the Nurses Home that was apparently located in Dover Street. I was just wondering if the cemetery would have a record of the burial? I doubt there would have been a headstone as she was a servant.

    The Monument of Sir Andrew Barkley Walker, All Saints Childwall.

    Sir Andrew Barkley Walker was the famous brewer who founded Walkers Brewery but he was also a patron of the arts in Liverpool - so much that he gave us the Walker Art Gallery. His monument struck me as odd for its highly Catholic looking mosaic of angels, yet this is a CoE church... odd eh?



    Also the grave of Thomas Moss Tate - Joseph Williamsons (The Mole) brother-in-law and a very influential businessman, a founder of the Atheneum, Botanic Garden and Liverpool Academy of Art (his father was the founder but he exhibited regularly). Strange that he's the only one of his family in the huge vault.

    And while I'm at it, one in the same graveyard I thought was more effective, because of it's simplicity, and another just because of it's age!

    St Michael's Toxteth Park has its own graveyard attached. It doesn't follow that someone who attended the church is buried there though. Finding someone's grave is notoriously difficult in England.
