Welcome to Rake Lane Cemetery Website.  A special feature of this cemetery is that many of its monuments are connected with major maritime disasters of the early twentieth century, including Titanic, Lusitania and the Empress of Ireland.  But, among other associations with the sea are the Liverpool pilot boat disasters of 1917 and 1939 and the tragic loss of the submarine Thetis.

There are some notably beautiful headstones, such as the full-rigged sailing ship carved in relief on an American sea captain's grave of 1885 and another of New Brighton lighthouse to commemorate one of its keepers.  Soldiers are buried here who fought in the Crimean War, the Boer War and another who fought with Garibaldi in Italy.  There is also a memorial to 'One of The Few', a hero of the Battle of Britain.
