Section plans are available at Wallasey Library but they are of a very poor quality (copies of copies) and too faint to include here. You may wish to contact the Friends of Rake Lane if you need help. The overall cemetery plan is shown below.
In most cases the headstones number behind each other. So, for instance, if you are looking at headstone 123 then 124 will be behind it and 125 behind that and so on. However, just to add to the difficulties, a few sections number left to right. To compound the difficulties very few of the head-stones are actually marked with the grave number. If you are wanting to visit the cemetery to look for a head-stone you are going to have to be patient.
