Anfield Cemetery, Anfield - Liverpool

A municipal cemetery designed by Edward Kemp and laid out in 1856-63. Contains buildings by Lucy & Littler. Of three original chapels, only one (listed grade II and now disused) remains. Positive progress has been made in the last year. Historic England is grant aiding a remedial repair scheme for the ruinous grade II listed catacombs in the centre of the cemetery. A Conservation Management Plan is being undertaken following grant aid from Historic England. The Friends of Anfield Cemetery, the Local Authority and Historic England maintain a close and positive relationship.
