Yes, this poor lady's name was used posthumously in a Beatles song but other than being local to their birthplace as a band, there is no connection to them.

Stopped by the church as part of a Beatles tour - didn't get to go inside. We did get to see the cemetary with Eleanor Rigby mentioned on a headstone - just incredible!

This really is a lovely church, well maintained and beautiful and serene inside. The church grounds is a graveyard and a great attraction to visitors to the city as there are the graves of Eleanor Rigby and Father McKenzie from the Beatles song of the same name.

This is full of history and fame, and that is just in the graveyard!. Situated in a beautiful part of Liverpool, in the heart of Beatle history.

We were lucky enough to have fabulous weather. Chilly but blue skies. The church itself is beautiful. It has a aura of peace and tranquility. The fact that it's connected to the Beatles means it's a go to place for any fan. I enjoyed my time there.

St Peters Church Hall is where John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met when The Quarrymen were playing at the Summer Fete. In the churchyard you will find the graves of Eleanor Rigby and Mr Toogood Smith, John Lennon's Uncle.
