En decembre 1914, Liverpool devint la 21eme base de patrouille auxillaire et en fevrier 1915, la base du 10eme Cruiser Squadron. Durant la 2eme guerre mondiale, Liverpool était le quartier general de la Western Approaches Command et un centre de depot pour officiers et marins de la marine marchande.

Un grand hopital canadien (5eme Hopital General Canadien) ouvrit a Kirkdale en juillet 1917 et sur les 386 tombes de la 1ere guerre mondiale, plus de 100 sont canadiens. Plus de la moitié des tombes durant cette période furent détruites et les restes furent enterrés dans deux lots et les noms inscrits sur un monument. Il y a aussi 115 tombes de la 2nd guerre mondiale.

Le cimetiere contient aussi 9 tombes etrangeres. A l'origine il en contenais plus, dont des Americains et des Allemands de la 1ere guerre et des Belges des deux guerres mondiales mais la plupart furent inhumés dans des cimetieres nationaux en Angleterre ou rapatrier dans leurs pays d'origine.

 

 

 

In December 1914, Liverpool became one of the 21 Auxiliary Patrol Bases and in February 1915, the base of the 10th Cruiser Squadron. During the Second World War, Liverpool was headquarters of Western Approaches Command and a manning depot for officers and men of the Merchant Navy who agreed to serve with the Royal Navy for the duration of the war.


A large Canadian hospital, which became No. 5 Canadian General Hospital, opened at Kirkdale in July 1917 and of the 386 First World War burials in Liverpool (Kirkdale) Cemetery, more than 100 are Canadian. Of the remainder, 82 are of officers and men of the King's (Liverpool) Regiment. About half of the graves from this period are scattered throughout the cemetery and the rest are contained in two war graves plots, where the names of the dead are recorded on Screen Wall panels. There are also 115 Second World War burials in the cemetery, nine of them in one of the First World War plots, the rest scattered.

This cemetery also contains nine war graves of other nationalities. Originally, there were many more, including American and German from the First World War and Belgian from both wars, but these were later removed to other national cemeteries in the United Kingdom or repatriated to their home country.
