Allerton Cemetery is almost unique as one of the few cemeteries in the country with all three of its denomination chapels still standing within it.

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’.

The event will also pay tribute to Sir Ken Dodd who passed away earlier this year at the age of 90 and is now resting in Allerton Cemetery where Cilla Black was also laid to rest.


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

Tickets are available at £10.00 each
