Cemetary Church Info Needed
I am in the USA. My Grandmother once took me from Widnes up a road towards Rainhill to an old church with a cemetary next to it to see the grave of her first son David Rogers (and other family members). I think it may have been in Rainhill or Rainhill stoops but perhaps not. I have looked online but haven't found a photograph that resembles it. It was not a large church and the graves were on the left as you face the church. We walked through an archway path and surrounding wall and saw the graves almost immediately to the left. Does anyone know the name of the church? I want to try to find out which relatives are buried in the churchyard.
