Rutter's cottage (also known as Hall Hill Cottage and Toll Bar Cottage) was built about 1820 and was, between about 1837 and 1841, the village school. There are quite a few pictures of the cottage, the one below is probably one that is less well known.
The graveyard on Greasby Road was the churchyard belonging to Greenbank Church, which closed in 1868 when St Mary's Church was opened. The church building was demolished in 1887, but the churchyard remained 'officially' open until 1958, when Birkenhead Corporation took over responsibility for it. The picture below is the only picture I know of Greenbank Church.
If you could let me know your Great Granddads’ name, I may be able to find some information on him.
