Graveyard Survey Project - St Nicholas Parish Church Halewood

Co-ordinated by Pam Beesley

Halewood graveyard has been systematically surveyed and recorded by volunteers co-ordinated by Pam Beesley. This has been a mammoth task and reflects a great deal of hard work. Pam has also produced a guide leaflet (available in the church) and booklet which highlights many of the intruiging internments, such as Sir Thomas Brocklebank (of the Cunard-Brocklebank shipping line) and John Hays Wilson of Lee Park Hall. (Pam has also written articles about the church and the William Morris windows). Click here for the graveyard project - Pam continues to research into the background of some of the Halewood folk interred during the 19th century.
