Where were Jewish people in West Kirby buried? #unitedkingdom #general

My 2 x great grandfather Morris Jacubs died on 11 May 1922, at 84 Banks Road, West Kirby, Cheshire England. I’ve read the pages about burial grounds, here on JewishGen but still can not locate Morris’s place of rest. Following his death, his second wife and their three children moved down to London. His first wife was not Jewish and will have been buried in Liverpool but I have not found a record of it.
Morris’s death was announced in the Jewish Chronicle 26 May 1922
Any thoughts on where Jewish residents of West Kirby might have been buried will be gratefully received.
with thanks, Nettie Edwards

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) has a list of cemeteries on its website by local community.

As does Jewish Gen's JCR-UK.  The Liverpool records can be found at www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Cemeteries/Liverpool

There are also individual Jewish cemetery websites for Liverpool which you can Google. Some are better recorded than others. I have relations in Rice Lane and Long Lane which have been recorded, as has Deane Road (which got public funding for this purpose) but most of my family lie in Green Lane, which has not been recorded, and I understand a lot of information has been lost (or not yet found) about this site.
