Necropolis Cemetery, Liverpool, Lancashire


Tree: 1. Essex Ennevers

Liverpool's "Necropolis" or "Low Hill" Cemetery was a proprietary cemetery, built on approximately five acres at the corner of Everton Rd. and West Derby Rd. It opened in 1825 and was largely used by nonconformists. The cemetery was closed in 1898 because of the unsanitary conditions caused by the amount of burials.

The cemetery was turned into a public garden called

Grant Gardens, opened by Alderman J R Grant in 1914.

The large stones were removed, the smaller and flatter ones were lowered and buried, and the Grecian style wall and buildings were demolished. Now, it is a large grassy park area which is often the site for wedding photos. The long, straight path through the centre is still the same as when it was a cemetery. The bodies were not removed. The headstone inscriptions were transcribed and are available at the Liverpool Record Office.
