Liverpool Necropolis - Grant Gardens
Due to the expansion of the port of Liverpool in the early 18th century Liverpool Necropolis (Low Hill Cemetery) was opened 1825, at the corner of Everton Road and West Derby Road (formerly Rake Lane). Designed by Architect John Foster Jr.at a cost of 8,000, the much needed cemetery was rapidly filled in the following 70 years with 80,000 burials. It was closed to burials in 1898 and in 1913 the lodges, gates & walls were demolished, monuments and large gravestones removed and the area landscaped.
Grant Gardens were opened by Alderman J R Grant in 1914.
