Heritage and Information Centre

This is a community project which provides information of all sorts, including information about New Brighton’s fascinating history, for the local community and visitors to the area.
The Centre is manned by Volunteers who give a few hours each week to keep it open and to talk about New Brighton to the people who come in.
We are open 7 days a week from 10.30am until 4 pm  – 11am till 4 pm on Sundays  – and we are looking for more Volunteers to help with this project.
Morning sessions are from 10.30 am till 1 pm and afternoon sessions are from 1 pm until 4 pm.
If you are able to spare some time to help us please ring Rusty on 639 5798.
We would be very pleased to hear from you.

    Hello, I am researching my family tree and have established that my great grandparents John and Mary Hynes are buried in Rake Lane Section 4R, No 74. They are buried with their son Thomas and 2 members of the Kay family who I have yet to establish a link with.

    I am curious to find out if any other members of the Hynes family are also buried there – most likely in the RC section, in particular Isabella Hynes who died 19th June 1893 in Poulton cum Seacombe.

    Do you have a database of all the burials that I could access please? Any help gratefully welcomed!

      Hello Julie. Just browsing and came across your message to the New Brighton Heritage Centre of 11 September 2014.

      There is a complete record of all the burials in Rake Lane cemetery, held by the Reference Library in Earlston Road, Wallasey.

    Mold Town Concert Band.
    This excellent 40 piece band – under the direction of Geoff Coward – is prepared to play (weather permitting) at Vale Park during a Sunday afternoon during the 2016 season.
    Can you please advise whether you have any dates available and what funding is available/required.
