Liverpool Cemeteries Online

Liverpool is the UK's seventh most populous community. The City Council manages the following area cemeteries and crematoria:

Allerton Cemetery (1909)
Anfield Cemetery and Crematorium (1863)
Bootle (1913)
Everton Cemetery(1880)
Kirkdale Cemetery (1881)
Springwood Crematorium (1975)
Toxteth Cemetery (1856)
West Derby Cemetery (1884)

About 4 Km from the terminal where many set off across the high seas for a new life lies the oldest, Toxteth Park Municipal Cemetery. Memorial inscriptions from 1856 to 2000, over 20,000 of them, have been transcribed by Robert and Rose Anderson and placed in a database. Check it out at www.toxtethparkcemeteryinscriptions.co.uk/

The Andersons have also contributed a listing of 50,784 surname entries for burials at Anfield Municipal Cemetery, the second oldest. Finding those MI transcriptions is a two step process, the first will find which transcription files have information for the surname. Start at http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ormandy/index.html

Hi John
Thank you for the information on the cemeteries that you are publishing. After finding my gg grandfather in the Birmingham cemeteries information you posted a week ago or so, I ordered his burial information. When I received that, I emailed your blog to my 3 third cousins in England, the US and Canada, and they were each inspired to search for their Brum relatives and expressed thanks to me. I am passing their thanks on to you.
I hope others have found this series of cemetery blogs equally useful.
Best wishes,
Helen
