Anfield Cemetery
Anfield Cemetery, also known as the City of Liverpool Cemetery, is on Priory Road, Anfield, Liverpool, England ( grid reference SJ365940 ). It covers an area of some 110 acres (45 ha) and includes axial and circular paths, two chapels and a Gothic style catacomb. The layout of the cemetery was designed by Edward Kemp. The cemetery is adjacent to Stanley Park and close to the stadia of Everton F.C. and Liverpool F.C. football clubs. The Liverpool Crematorium was opened in 1896. The cemetery has been placed on the Heritage at Risk Register because of the poor condition of the one (out of three) remaining chapels and the two catacombs.
