Ferry Cross the Mersey - Possibly a cemetery near Liverpool Anglican Cathedral... St James's Cemetery, indeed next to the Anglican Cathedral. The sloping passages (carriage ramps from the days, until 1825, it was a quarry) are still there. The monument in the next picture is visible in front of these sloping drives.
