Martin Doherty wants resurrect the idea for a Friends Group for Anfield Cemetery. He and Bob Halliday have been toying with this idea for a couple of years now. They both appreciate the history within the cemetery and crematorium. They are working actively to form a Friends Group, partly to reclaim the cemetery from vandals and other partakers in anti social behaviour, but also for the wider community to come to appreciate the history and heritage contained within both sites.
The Rangers tour is a regular feature, now they want a website/webpage to float ideas and discuss the future. To this aim they are to meeting Ron Formby to discuss a way forward.
There are also plans for a Genealogy Centre at Anfield, so that more people can visit and appreciate the joys of Family History Research. Who knows, as Friendsí Group we might one day be in a position to help this scheme along.
