St Michaels-in-the-Hamlet



Picton's Memorials of Liverpool

A Liverpool Church Builder

Near the corner of Cheapside, on the south side of Tithebarn St, stood the ancient tithe-barn erected in the reign of Vlll. It passed from the possession of the Molyneux family and was converted into shops, the main structure of the old oak roof remaining. The land behind was for a long period a public bowling green. In the early part of the present century the Mersey Iron Foundry was established on the site. The principal partner in the firm was Mr John CRAGG, and enterprising man who had a penchant for church building, and on the principle of the currier in the fable, who believed under all circumstances that there was "nothing like leather" Mr CRAGG introduced cast iron very largely into the construction of his churches. Thomas RICKMAN, who afterwards became celebrated as a pioneer in the rival of Gothic architecture, resided about that time [1812] in Liverpool, and was diligently perusing his researches. Mr CRAGG obtained his assistance in designing Everton Church, St Philip's Hardman St, and St Michael's Toxteth Park, in all of which cast iron enters very largely into the construction. It would be unfair to the architect to criticise too severely the results of conditions to restricted. It may suffice to observe that the example so set has not been followed generally. Mr CRAGG, after retiring from business, resided for many years in St Michael's-hamlet, and died on the 17th July 1854, aged 87.

The foregoing is the last burial that took place in St Johnís Churchyard, before being closed by order in Council.

Tho OMALLEY.M.A, Incumbent


I am surmising these burials took place in St Johnís graveyard, confirmation is welcomed.


Soon after the work commenced on St George's Hall in 1854, developments began which led to the demolition of St John's Church and later to the laying out of St John's Garden. In 1865 the churchyard was closed for burials In 1897 under the Liverpool Churches Act St John's was closed
