We are the Friends of Prescot Cemetery & Churchyard, a group of volunteers dedicated to making our local cemetery a place of beauty for our town and our loved ones.
Prescot Cemetery is owned and maintained by Knowsley Council, but it is closed for purchasing new burial plots.
St Mary’s Churchyard
The churchyard belongs to Prescot Parish Church, dedicated to St Mary the Blessed Virgin.
Prescot Cemetery is on Manchester Road, Prescot, a short walk from the town centre. As well as the main gates, there is a pedestrian entrance on Wood Lane, and you can also enter from St Mary’s Churchyard, on Church Street.
- Prescot Churchyard Church Street, L34 3LA
- Prescot Cemetery Manchester Road, 1NQ
Access is 24/7, but for your own safety, we advise visiting during the daytime.

In October 2014, the Friends of Prescot Cemetery & Churchyard, with help from Knowsley Council, created a memorial garden to remember the many children, and stillborn and newborn babies buried in unmarked graves on the site.
Many thanks to Robbob from Fingerpost for sharing his photos of the dedication ceremony. The service was led by the Vicar of Prescot, Reverend Canon John Taylor, with contributions from the Mayor of Knowsley, Frank Walsh; the Mayor of Prescot, Gillian Flatley; and FPCC Chair Viv Frodsham.
Many thanks to everyone who has donated to our cause. We really appreciate your support.
Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so either on-line (preferred) or by passing to one of our members working at the Churchyard on most Saturday afternoons between 1pm and 4pm.
