Flaybrick Memorial Gardens - Wirral

A public cemetery opened in 1864 and was extended in the late C19 and early C20. The layout was designed by Edward Kemp and the buildings by Lucy & Littler. Kemp is buried within the cemetery. Historic England has match funded a Local Authority scheme to undertake remedial works and localised masonry repairs to consolidate the ruined chapels. A Conservation Management Plan has been produced and is to be adopted by the local authority. There is a positive relationship with the Local Authority and Friends Group through regular steering group meetings.
