 :)  Thank You,

I thought there might have been a type of  searchable site for burials and Crematoria, or even Memorials.
I have not a clue where he would have been   buried etc,He  lived  it seems  in Waldgrave Rd, I think and business- Pawnshop, was on Broad  Green Road-died in Royal Infirmary.

There are grave inscription records free online for a number of Liverpool cemeteries. They take some time to go through though. More records are available online for the 19th century as this death is the 1950s it's more difficult. I've had no luck. Possible cemeteries going by where he lived are West Derby Cemetery, Anfield Cemetery and Allerton Cemetery. If there was no stone then he could still be there. I did a quick search of the Liverpool Echo to see if there was a death notice but nothing came up.

Some links:-

West Derby: http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~ormandy/nostalgia/
Anfield: http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~ormandy/history/
Allerton (incomplete): http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~ormandy/misc/
Kirkdale: http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~ormandy/folklore/
Toxteth: http://www.toxtethparkcemeteryinscriptions.co.uk/

Liverpool City Council cemeteries usually charge for a general search of various cemeteries that might be an option as they can do a more complete search than we can on here. You can contact them and ask them here:-
