As people have said St Nicholas is a landscaped cemetery now there may be transcriptions of this family's gravestones on Family Search. You should be able to find original record images for both these popular C of E Liverpool churches on Ancestry and Family Search. Do you use either? Ancestry is available free in some libraries and if you aren't familiar with accessing non-searchable record images on Family Search have a look at this thread:-

Here's a link to the 1769 marriage record image at St Peter's CE Liverpool on Family Search viewable when registered and signed in. This record is not downloadable but you can take a screen image copy of the record instead:-

Regarding the deaths on Lancs opc for John and Catherine. On the entry for Catherine's death it states that she is the wife of John, not the widow, implying that John is still alive.

I'm beginning to wonder could there be two John Wakefields?

Regarding the comment that John died in Ireland. Don't forget that any information given at a burial is from a third party. The person who knew all the correct details is dead so any info given comes from someone else who may or may not know the true facts.

Emeltom ive looked over the other info again and in 1784 john had a shop (i think) in St Peters Square so he must have outlived his wife but 2 john wakefields who were both watch case makers married to catherines? That seems a bit of a long shot doesnt it?

Blue70 i dont have access to either at the moment but when i get money to resubscribe i'll take a look. Thank you!

There's an index for St. Nicholas CE Liverpool grave inscriptions on Family Search. None of the Wakefields you listed are on it. There are only two Wakefields on the index, buried in the same grave: Samuel Wakefield, an innkeeper, of High street who died in 1778 and Mary Wakefield, innkeeper, of High street, who died in 1789. Others in this grave have the surname Calvert. St Nicholas and St Peter's were not exclusive cemeteries they were extensively used by the town's people regardless of class. Looking on Family Search some of those buried at St Nicholas were moved to other cemeteries but most were not disturbed and are still buried beneath the landscaped gardens.
