Is this Laird St?
There is a lot of old shops and I cannot work it out where about on Laird St it is or was.

Looks like Conway street to me
The flats could be St Andrews Square

The Argyle St end or the park entrance end?
I cannot see the old school or the row of shops that house the bike shop today.

It's definitely Conway Street, looking up from the direction of the old Conway Street School / Argyle Street. If you look at the building on the left just before the petrol station in mikeeb's picture, attached is a full view of it - and a view of the petrol station. IIRC, the petrol station was built on the site of the old Scottish church graveyard.

Thanks Derek and Yoller. happy
The website has labelled it wrongly as Laird St.

I'd agree with that, York Street on the right where the billboard is.

I agree with all that apart from the graveyard, St Andrew's didn't have a graveyard. There may have been some memorial stones or something like that because so many people believed it had a graveyard but it didn't.

As far as I know, the bodies were exhumed from St Andrew's, Conway St, buried at St Mary's and exhumed again and taken to Landican along with all of the St Mary's graves, when the dock was built.

So it did and didn't have a graveyard, no wonder I'm confused. I wonder when they were moved to St Mary's and why they weren't moved to Flaybrick which would be cheaper and less religiously controversial.

May be unrelated, but my friends dad worked on the flyover on Conway St for the Birkenhead Tunnel and he said they had dug up an old grave yard whilst doing the foundations and roads, and they were all reinterred in Landican. Unfortunately he has passed so I cannot ask exactly where on Conway St.
