    The Beginning

    Royal Liver Assurance began life in 1850 as The Liverpool Lyver Burial Society. It was formed by 9 working men in a pub known as the Lyver Inn. Following various moves around the city for the next 60 years, Royal Liver started work on the landmark Royal Liver Building in 1908 and moved in on completion on July 19, 1911. Now over 100 years later. For more information visit the Friends of Royal Lyver website: www.friendsofroyallyver.co.uk
