About the memorial: In memory of the men employed at the Wolverhampton Corrugated Iron Works (The Mersey Iron Works) who were lost in the First World War. The memorial plaque originally stood at the entrance to the Iron Works in Cromwell Road but was moved to their sports ground. When the iron Works was demolished and the sports ground sold, the plaque was removed to the Royal British Legion Club in Stanney Lane, Ellesmere Port. When that club was itself demolished the plaque was stored by The RBL and has recently (March 2018) been restored and relocated back to Cromwell Road where it now stands in a dedicated memorial garden near the junction with Whitby Road and the Westminster Bridge.
