Chapelry History

In 1699  the parish was created from Walton[-on-the-Hill] in perpetuity 20 shillings and threepence to be paid to the rector of Walton; £400 was ordered to be raised to build a church dedicated to St Peter. In fact it cost three thousand five hundred pounds and is said to be the first parish church that was erected in Lancashire after the Reformation.

The church was consecrated in 1704. St Peter Church Street was designated the Cathedral Church of Liverpool.

In 1830 a new peal of ten bells was installed,in 1831 the church clock was first lighted by gas.

Removal of bodies from a part of St Peter's churchyard, opened in 1704, commeced Jan 27 1868. About 2000 bodies were removed. Some of the coffins bore the date of 1707.  The bodies were all removed" with the utmost decency and propriety" and were re-interred in Anfield cemetery.

The mourning at the death of Queen Victoria was lead to St Peter as the Cathedral Church in 1900. A choral memorial service including the Mayor and aldermen of the city and the Bishop of Liverpool gave the benediction.

The church was demolished in 1922, and completed 2 October 1922.

"Liverpool was a chapelry in the parish of Waltonuntil 1698, when it was constituted a distinct parish, and a rectory divided into medieties respectively belonging to the incumbents of St Peter's church and the parochial chapel of St Nicholas. In 1838, an act was passed for uniting the two portions, upon the decease of one of the rectors..."[1]
