Much ado about Beatles
The next stop on our tour was Peter’s Parish which is claimed to be the resting place of Eleanor Rigby and Father McKenzie. The fact that the McKenzie buried there was not a priest, and that the description of Eleanor Rigby in the song is very unlikely to be a reference to the apparently perpetually unconscious scullery maid from the Woolton area buried there.
Some time during John’s childhood this was a minimum security orphanarium or something to that effect. Being somewhat of a rebellious screwball he took to playing with the orphans after sneaking over the fairly imposing fence. For reasons more complicated than I care to explain this upset his Aunt. During one of these unrecorded and most certainly not publicly available conversations John, according to our guide, informed her it was nothing to get hung about. I am somewhat skeptical that this is anything more than a song lyric, and further that it was a common punishment for trespassing at any point in the 20th century.
