The Church of England Church to Christ the King

 North West Index

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral: In 1888 the Liverpool Diocese was founded and in 1901 it was decided to build a new cathedral for Liverpool.

In 1922 Giles Gilbert Scott (then aged 22!) won the architect's design competition and the Foundation Stone was laid in 1904 by King Edward VII.

By 1910 the Lady Chapel was completed and consecrated allowing services to be held for the first time.

In 1924 the High Altar, Chancel and Eastern Transepts were completed in by 1941 the central space under the tower was finished. The Nave was built in the 1960s.

Finally, in 1978, the whole Cathedral was completed and a service of dedication held in the presence of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
