Two of my ancestors were buried in St James' Cemetery, Liverpool - one in 1860's, one in 1870's.

I have looked up their burials online at familysearch.org and, on the index register films, their grave locations appear to be identical. Plus then I looked up their individual burial records on film which gave only the usual brief information.

However I am wondering if there are any extant cemetery plans which would give me some idea of where in that large, now-cleared-and-turned-into-park, space they were buried.

Does anyone know?

All help gratefully received.

Cheers,
Westoe

Aha! Ruskie, thank you very much. Why couldn't I find that? I did Google various terms before asking for help.

This is wonderful! Now I know what HWT means (=Higher Western Terrace) and I can actually see the plot number on that map. Wow!! That's almost as good as having the original stone still standing.

This particular couple means a lot to me. I've grown very fond of them over the years as I pieced together their story. Thank you. 

Cheers,
