A baby’s gravestone from over 80 years ago has been found among rubble on a local beach.
The historic find has been uncovered after high tides and stormy conditions disturbed piles of rubble along Hightown and Formby beach which had been transferred there from a blitz ravaged Liverpool.
The tiled mosaic pays tribute to a young 9 month old babh called Michael Servini who passed away in September 6th, 1938.
There are now calls for the council to rescue the memorial from hightown beach and preserve it.
Michael Anthony Servini was born in October 1937 and sadly passed away from illness after a short stay in Liverpool Royal Childrens hospital 9 months later.
Michael was buried in Ford Cemetery and the stone is thought to have been commissioned by his family and places at a nearby Church, which was eventually heavily damaged by Nazi bombing.
Michael’s mother Rose remained a resident of the area until she passed away in 1973.
