Project Viability Grant Application: South Chapel, Anfield Cemetery,

The Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) have granted £3,000 to Friends of Anfield for a Project Viability Report on our South Chapel. This is a significant step in achieving our aim of getting Anfield’s Grade II* cemetery off Historic England’s At Risk Register and building an international heritage and visitor centre by 2025. We are very grateful to AHF for this important contribution.

The architects, Purcells, have been appointed to provide a costed Condition Survey to make the South Chapel safe for occupancy and provide options for re-use with outline costs of alterations. Bob, Graham and Tom have already met with Rob Cambers of Purcells to discuss Friends’ intentions. Rob is to report back in June.
