Anfield Cemetery, also known as the City of Liverpool Cemetery, is on Priory Road, Anfield, Liverpool, England.

Anfield Cemetery opened in 1863. Anfield Crematorium opened in 1896.
It covers an area of some 110 acres (45 ha) and includes axial and circular paths, two chapels and a Gothic style catacomb. The layout of the cemetery was designed by Edward Kemp.

The cemetery is adjacent to Stanley Park and close to the stadiums of Everton F.C. and Liverpool F.C. Notable individuals to have been buried or cremated there include: Bill Shankly, the former manager of Liverpool FC who was cremated there in 1981; former Everton captain Brian Labone; Boer War hero Donald Dickson Farmer (died 1936), and Labour MP Bessie Braddock (died 1970).

The cemetery has been placed on the Heritage at Risk Register because of the poor condition of the one (out of three) remaining chapels and the two catacombs. The cemetery itself was upgraded to Grade II* in 2009.
