Anfield cemetary is massive.  You would have to supply the section number where she is buried and the grave number.  You would also need to establish whether there is a headstone to take a photograph of.

Are you certain she was buried and not cremated?

I donít know if this link with contact email is still active
It says they have photographs of headstones at Anfield Cemetery and will email a photo to you for a small fee.

Wouldnít she have died as Emily Finlayson or am I completely muddled? There is a cremation listed On Anc* at Liverpool Crematorium for an Emily Finlayson of 20 Smith Street Liverpool who died 21 August 1980 at Fazakerley Hospital. Cremation was on 29 August 1980. If that is the person you are looking for it is unlikely that there is a gravestone unless she is remembered on a family memberís headstone..

You are right Gibel.  I was involved in Tornadoís original post some months ago and Emily married Archibald Finlayson who died 1988
