Following a visit from an architect of Historic England who was shown around the derelict chapels, the ‘Friends of Allerton Cemetery’ was formed with the aim of saving and returning them to use for the benefit of the local community.
With enthusiastic patrons – including Lord David Alton, Maria Eagle MP and Deputy Lord Lieutenant Robert Owen – and trustees, the group is working hard to raise funds.
This Saturday (20th October) a special fundraising concert will take place at Mossley Hill Church – ‘Cilla and the Sounds of Merseybeat’.
If you can join them on Saturday to help preserve these pieces of Liverpool’s heritage and create something for community benefit, please purchase your tickets online from www.friendsofallertoncemetery.com
Tickets are available at £10.00 each
