I know this is a bit ghoulish but after a church is demolished
and if it has a burial ground I presume any graves there are opened and its contents and gravestones/monuments are sent to a cemetary.
Has this happened in recent years
If they pulled down St Johns in Liscard I'd like to follow this up from start to finish.
Anyone got a list of churches with graveyards that have gone

St Andrews, Birkenhead. gravestones/monuments went to St Mary's and then Landican.

Liscard Chapel. Some have been moved to Rake Lane.

These are going back a bit. I cant think of any in recent years.

I've heard that developers simply go in and build whole new housing estates on former graveyard sites. Then, some years later, bodies starting floating up in swimming pools and the house then becomes haunted by poltergeists.

Or that might of been a film I saw.

It's true I saw that too - they can even appear in 10th floor appartments.......

I think that's what I was talking about before. There were Indians and Pakistani's. In the end the entire house gets sucked into a vortex. I think Anne Witticombe was there too.

I get a little confused at times.

Developers built new property years ago at the bottom of Radner Drive in Wallsey. I was told the story that people never lived their long as the houses were haunted due to building them over the graves. Ghost hunters were brought in by people who lived there to try and get rid of them..........

After I win the lottery & buy St. John's in Liscard & all the correct procedures have been followed, all remaining gravestones will be cleaned up & used to line the walls of the garden, neatly set & pointed in. This will provide a lasting tribute.

When they extended the ship repairers next to the priory, the bodies were exhumed and taken to Landican. I used to work with a feller who made the coffins, well boxes more than coffins and they were plywood. Think there are still some burials that have been built over in Liscard chapel on Rake lane?

Interesting point about St Johns because one of them is Sir John Tobin, Will they just shove him in an unmarked mass grave?
