Nov 6th 1893



Kirkdale Gaol, Liverpool, the scene of 67 public and private executions during the last sixty years is about to be demolished. The bodies of 67 men and women, who have met their fate at the hands of the public executioner, have all been interred within the precincts of the prison, the approaching demolishon of which rendered necessary the removal of the remains.

This duty devolved on the Prison Commissioners. Accordingly these authorities communicated with Kirkdale Burial Board requesting that accommodation might be provided in the cemetery at Longmore Lane, Fazakerley, for 67 coffins and their contents, which would be brought from Kirkdale.

When the subject was broached at the Board meeting stout opposition was offered by several of the members, who urged in earnest protest that incalculable harm would be wrought thereby to the cemetery, inasmuch as many people from superstition and other promptings would be unwilling themselves to be interred or to have their relatives and friends interred in the cemetery in which they would be placed, as it were side by side with common felons and murderers. However, the Prison Commissioners were informed that the remains would be received at Longmoor Lane.

A stringent condition would be imposed in order probably to in some measure meet the views of those who opposed the giving of the required sanction. This condition was that the removal of the remains must be effected at night time. The necessary condition was agreed to, and preparations made for the carrying out of the ghastly task.

The work of exhumation, removal and re-interment were entrusted to the contractor. The remains of either four or five bodies have been dealt with daily during the past fortnight, and up to Friday, 60 coffins and their contents had found their way to the cemetery at Fazakerley, where they have been interred five in a grave, in a remote corner of the Nonconformist portion of the burial ground.

The work in hand will probably be concluded by Wednesday, though as a matter of fact some difficulty is being experienced in finding any remains of the other bodies. It is stated on reliable authority that the exhumation and re-interment has really been little more that form, for the reason that in most cases there was found nothing in the shape of remains save, and except, perhaps the crown of a skull, or odd thigh bone. The remains placed in the 60 coffins have been chiefly a few shovelfuls of soil, the quicklime having done its work, surely enough.
