Cemeteries and crematoria

Anfield Cemetery

Situated in north Liverpool near Everton and Liverpool football stadiums, the Grade II* listed cemetery is roughly 110 acres with a classic French design, by Edward Kemp. Opened in 1863, the cemetery has three chapels and entrances, designed by the Liverpool architects Lucy and Littler. A crematorium was added in 1896 on the southern part of the site, becoming one of the first of its kind in the country.

Find a grave

Individual section maps showing exact grave locations are not available for public use.

The Anfield Cemetery section map will help you find your way around and make it easier to find section locations.

Top tip: If you have a grave number, look on the back of newer headstones in your section which will help you to get closer to your chosen grave, as they will often have a grave number inscribed.
