EVERTON CEMETERY - RC SECTION (1880-1928)

Everton Cemetery on Long Lane, Fazakerley, was opened in 1880. There are three distinct sections: Church of England; Roman Catholic and General or un-consecrated. The layout of the  sections can be seen in this diagram.
Separate burials registers were kept for each section until 1928. There was also a separate register for 'pauper burials'. From 1928 all burials started to be recorded in one volume.
This index covers all the 3,500+ burials recorded in the Roman Catholic register (1880-1928).
The original records are held at Liverpool Record Office Ref 352 CEM 7/3/1. Microfilmed copies of these records can be obtained through any LDS (Mormon) family history centre Ref FHL BRITISH Film 1564514
The index gives the Folio (ie a double page) number, the entry number, the year of burial, the forename and surname of the deceased, the age, and the grave number in the case of burial in a private grave.
The original registers also give 'rank of profession' as well as the 'late abode' of the deceased, the name of the person performing the burial ceremony and the owner of the grave (in the case of a private grave).
A second series of records, known as order books, were also compiled by the cemetery authorities. In addition to the information provided in the burial register the order books give the time of the burial, the price of the grave, the name of the undertaker and often both the name and address of the person who paid for the grave.
If you know the number of a private grave in Everton Cemetery - or any other Liverpool Corporation cemetery - the ORDER NUMBERS of everyone buried in the grave can be obtained by telephoning Liverpool Council (0151 233 3004). It is important to note that although the order books are arranged in a rough chronological order the entry numbers in the burial register and the ORDER NUMBERS are NOT IDENTICAL so if you obtain a list of order numbers from the council it will be necessary to consult the order books rather than the burial registers.
