Jonno39 - Keep me right lol
There were 3 churches.
2 Graves Exist from the Titanic.
The First plea of insanity victims is buried there.
The Second Church was round.
Its rated 3rd Best Gothic Cemetery.
Why it was built there? (Bidston Avenue, straight grand road).
Which used to have holly tress and others top to bottom.
And loads more....

See Inside the Church Click Me

-------------
The Main Church i was told today was divided into 2 because
one side was for catholics and the other for prositants.
And was used to hold funeral services in its day.

Out Side the Cemetery Gates there used to be a Victorian Bus Stop
with a Glass Roof.

And If you turned left when entering the gates there used
to be men and ladies toilets.

Flaybrick Memorial gardens as it is known now. Is a catalogue of history. The points mark has made are true and can easily be cross referenced .The insanity victim was a Chinese guy call Loch Ah Tam and he supposedly murdered his wife and three children in a fit of rage but pleaded insanity as he had no recollection of the events in question. He was tried and convicted and sentenced to hang at Walton gaol. Coincidentally the day of the funeral was the same day that he was hung some witnesses report a large gust of wind on an otherwise calm day as the family were lowered in to the grave . Loch Ah Tam is said to stalk the path near to the grave .the grave can be found on the old boundary wall to the infectious diseases hospital.

The cemetery its self was opened in may 1864 but the original plans where drawn up some years before ,the designer a Mr Edward Kemp chose that site as it provided a processional route so the populus could pay there last respects and if you look back out the gates you can see this today.there are many people who were significant to the rise of Birkenhead buried in there as well as military hero's ,Titanic victims and victims from the Thetis submarine disaster

There used to be three chapels t,the main church was divided into two Catholic and Protestant and there was a Methodist chapel as well.there are several unmarked paupers graves with up to seventy bodies in them also victims(mainly children)of the diphtheria out break are buried there as well. it is also the resting place of some of the Laird family (not john).To be honest I could write for hours because every grave tells a story

Excellent Pictures Jonno, Ive updated your post (Dates Changed)

Re: Flaybrick Cemetery - Birkenhead - 12th Feb 2008 5:47pm

Apparently way back + 40 years.
Bidston Avenue which is in the distance, used to have trees
all the way down. There were holly bushes shaped into tall
trees with rounded tops almost like a simple ice lolly.

There were trees that flowered and made it look so prestigious
and that was a very posh road to live in. As Jonno said to us
on our outing, that they used Bidston Avenue as they wanted
a "Grand Entrance" so you can see that from the Gates there
is a straight road almost into Birkenhead.

So the Modern Bidston Avenue we know today is nothing
to what it was, when the council looked after and trimmed
those trees and holly.

I'm informed that the Church was used for Funeral Services.
And it was divided in half, but unsure which side was which.

One side was for the Catholics and the Other Side (right, left) for the protestants.

What a shame its in the condition it is today.
Derelict.

You can just make out the war memorial cross at the front.
I don't know any more than that.

Q. Has the "Spire" been removed, ive only just noticed.

Some very interesting stuff there smile

I noticed the other day, If you look straight up Bidston Avenue towards Flaybrick Cemetery, Bidston Windmill is in line with the Cemetery and Bidston Avenue albeit slightly to the left, however as is my understanding, where the foundations of the orignal Windmill are, this would place it directly in line.

Wonder if that had any influence on where it was built?

Has anyone ever noticed the Jewish grave near the Nanny Goat entrance? If you come through from Nanny Goats its on your right, follow the wall along and it is a pointy thing with star of David on it and I think maybe Hebrew. Been years since I seen it.

Never forget riding through there on ma bike with mates one summer and we spotted a tall holly bush on fire, no smoke, just flames. We went back about 15 minutes later and expected to find it all burnt but there was no sign of burn marks or the smell of burning - totally freaked us out!!! (burning bush in the cemetery - what does that mean???)

Re: Flaybrick Cemetery - Birkenhead - 24th Jul 2008 12:58am

I went through Flaybrick Cemetery week to take some pics of the Crossways estate end on Sunday and it has got even worse. There are more empty houses burned and 2 sections of the cemetery wall have now gone. Steel gates are still on the entrance to the graveyard and it looks like wood has been piled up and set on fire around them.
I was getting watched by some hooded scallies so I didn't stay too long.
I heard some of the vaults have been broken into and bones scattered around the place a few years back.
There is also an urban legend about a lad who robbed a ring off a skeleton in a grave and was followed by a man in a cape and a top hat up to Tollemache Road, so he went and put the ring back.

There are two chinese graves in the left corner, go through main gate, turn immediate left and they're in the corner by the wall. Close by is a heart breaking headstone for the Williams family 3 sons buried first, died in WW1, and then the two parents who died years later within a month of eachother, 1936 I think, so sad.

Throughout the summer the friends of flaybrick do guided walks. They are usually mentioned in the wirral globe or news (if you are lucky enough to get one delivered!)I have also seen a flyer on the wall of the cafe at the tam o'shanter. I wonder whether it can be googled? might be worth a try.

Re: Flaybrick Cemetery - Birkenhead - 19th Jun 2009 10:38pm

Sounds intense, nothing like that happend when we camped there on halloween night, just a few spooky sounds and about 15 drunks walking home from places, i was amazed at how many people walk through there at night.

its a shame in the last few years alot of it has been vadalised.

when we were 15/16 we used to go there but the group friends i had actually had respect and despite the stereotype scally gang we were we never once vandalised that place.

there was very few headstones knocked down back then, i went through there a few weeks back walking to my mums and was shocked at how bad its got.

The Chinese inscription of Lock Ah Tam's name on the stone gave rise to a belief at the time that Triad gangs did a deal with the authorities to have his body buried there. Don't know about that. I have seen his grave in the confines of HMP Liverpool in 1979. Whether he is in there or Flaybrick is anyone's guess. All excuted bodies have now been removed from HMP Liverpool.

The info is at Landican cemetery, unfortunately some of the Flaybrick documents were lost.
