The intention of this section is to provide geographical information to aid genealogists and family historians.
The map used is based upon the 6 inch to 1 mile street maps of Liverpool and district compiled by John Bartholomew, in particular the
1899 and 1901 editions. The map can be navigated by using the grid at the bottom of the page. Clicking on any square will take you to a page containing a
large image of each map section (like the one below) as well as the names of all the roads and streets within that section, as they were in 1901.
Liverpool Street Index A-Z 1901
lists 2,366 streets by name. Not all streets that have ever existed in Liverpool will be listed. Some had
not been built by 1901, others had already disappeared, and some were not included by John Bartholomew -
possibly because they were considered too small or contained no residential or commercial property.
Reproductions of the larger scale Ordnance Survey maps published by
are available to purchase at many outlets.
Digital Archives has produced a CD containing all 50 sheets of the 60 inch to 1 mile
Ordnance Survey Liverpool Town Plans (1847 & 1864).
All Church of England and Roman Catholic churches are highlighted on the large nine square sections. Other places of worship, schools and
public buildings will be added shortly.
It should be remembered that Liverpool at this time was quite small and the extent of the map grid was as follows:-
- A1, Fazakerley Hospital. - E1, Newsham Park. - G1, Wavertree Playground.
- A4, Hornby Dock, Bootle. - E4, Town Centre. - G4, Harrington Dock, Dingle.
