Holy Trinity Church Wavertree

Church of England - Diocese of Liverpool

HTW's Churchyard

The churchyard at Holy Trinity dates back as far as the church - over 200 years, though originally the site was only a fraction of the land it now covers (see history section).

It contains a great number of graves and so much history; the church often deals with enquiries from people researching their family genealogy.

Since April 1st 2002 the churchyard has been maintained by Liverpool City Council, and individual graves are tended by the families concerned.

It is a ‘closed’ graveyard - in other words, it is full, with no room for new graves to be opened. Occasionally families can bury their loved ones in existing graves if there is room to do so. Increasingly their best option is to bury ashes.

Unfortunately many of the church’s records were destroyed in a fire in 1961 but those that exist are held either by the church (more recent records) or the Records Office at Liverpool Central Library, William Brown Street, Liverpool L3 8EW. The Liverpool Diocesan office, Church House, 1 Hanover Street, Liverpool L1 3DW may also be of assistance with historical enquiries.
