Also known as The Wirral. The names are inscribed on a low coping stone (similar to that on the far left of the second photo), part of the surround for Birkenhead's cenotaph, which is on the east side of Hamilton Square, and facing the Town Hall. Some of those named also have individual plaques in churches around Wirral.

Hi Berenice

As far as I can see on the list there are only two officers namely Lt Bingham and Capt Laird?

Gordon Laird was the second son of a John Laird, of Birkenhead, who predeceased him (b.1834 - d.25.1.1898), and was part of the shipbuilding Laird family that became Cammell-Laird.
