Find a grave, West Derby Cemetery, Liverpool
« on: Tuesday 11 January 22 19:40 GMT (UK) »
I have found a burial record for George Reid buried 23 July 1913 at West Derby Cemetery, Unconsecrated Ground, section 5 plot 282.
However I cannot find any record on the ‘Find a Grave’ site. Could this be because the grave no longer exists or records are incomplete?
Any advice much appreciated.

Find a grave relies on volunteers to add memorials.

No guarantee that any particular cemetery has anywhere near a complete set

Because he purchased the grave does not mean there is a headstone.  No headstone - no entry on Findagrave

Have you contacted the Records Office to ask if there is a headstone?  Large numbers of headstones have been removed as "unsafe" over the years

He can be found on the 1911 census - same address as on burial record.

All,
Thanks for the replies. I have not found a record to confirm the grave was marked with a stone. I was hoping to find a memorial to my 2nd great grandfather that I could visit.

If you are able to visit the cemetery you already have the exact location of the grave so it should be relatively easy to find. It is a huge cemetery but there is a map of where each section is. We found the one we were looking for very easily and as a bonus the adjacent grave was another relative.

Liverpool Central Library 3rd Floor Archive Dept hold for each Cemetery a Map/Plan of the Cemetery layout which you can photocopy there.
They also hold a Plan of each Section within that Cemetery with each numbered plot shown within that Section

Find a Grave is a limited resource there are better ones for Liverpool cemeteries that have inscriptions. The volunteer gravestone inscription site below contains inscriptions for that cemetery but it's not listed
