Cemeteries and crematoria

Everton Cemetery

This 55-acre site in north Liverpool, Long Lane, opened for burials in 1880. It suffered bomb damage during World War 2, evidence which can still be seen today via shrapnel markings on many of the older memorials. The cemetery lodges are still intact and retain much of their former glory as private dwellings. Many of the cemetery buildings are Grade II listed.

Find a grave

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

The Everton 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.
