You can see the Friends Meeting House (Quakers), and grave yard, on the 1875 Town Plan at http://www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html?coords=340770,366489

 The meeting house latest update - The second oldest place of Dissenting worship in the city, the meeting house in Frodsham Street was re modelled in the 19th century and repaired in 1960, but structural weaknesses in the building persuaded the Friends to sell it to a commercial developer for demolition in 1975, after which the society moved into new rooms, purpose-built over shops on the same site but entered from Union Walk rather than Frodsham Street, where they continued to meet in 2000.

Hi - just come across this & interested as I'm actually in Chester. My husband - Chester born & bred
- remembers the original building but not a burial ground, so perhaps that went first.
Yep, Tesco's car park seems about right,but your ancestors are in good company - remember the
discovery of Richard 111?
