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 and booklet (both available below) which highlight 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.

Brief histories of a few of those interred in the graveyard

by Pam Beesley

This is a downloadable copy of Pam's latest research. It is always intruiging to discover the stories behind the names on the memorials and Pam has discovered several fascinating stories. For a remote country churchyard there are a surprising number of notable links to well known local and national figures.
