Most of the almost 700 United States servicemen who died in Liverpool hospitals during World War I were initially buried in this cemetery. After the war the remains were reburied in Brookwood American Cemetery, or repatriated to the USA.
The head of Australian Aborigine warrior Yagan (c.1795-1833), after being kept in Liverpool Museum, was buried in the cemetery in 1964 in a box also containing a Peruvian mummy and a Maori's head that had also been kept by the museum. After lobbying of British and Australian governments by Noongar tribal representatives, the head was exhumed in 1997(despite a common grave of 22 infant children having been made over it in intervening years) for repatriation and reburial in Belhus, Western Australia.
