Site Information

The cemetery occupies a large site and has two public entrances, a pedestrian gate towards the Ainsdale end of the site and a traffic/pedestrian entrance at the Birkdale end. The site is organised into a number of sections. As you enter the cemetery through the traffic entrance, there is a site plan which lists these sections.

At the traffic entrance to the cemetery is the lodge. This is not in use at present and is sadly showing signs of disrepair. The council intend to bring this property back into use in the future.

In the middle of the cemetery, behind the two oldest sections of the cemetery is the chapel. It provides a Landmark feature within the site and adds to the overall atmosphere of the cemetery. It is currently used for storage. Sadly this building also shows some signs of disrepair which, one hopes, the council will rectify before it deteriorates further.

The cemetery is actively used and by looking at an aerial map for the site, the usage of the site can be appreciated. By comparing that map to the graves today, one can appreciate the changes especially in Sections O and I; and to a lesser extend Section G. These 3 sections are located to the Ainsdale (left) side of the cemetery further back than the chapel from the road.

 Below are images of the various sections within the cemetery, with links to their own pages which sometimes contains further images.
