About the memorial: "In 1916 11ha of Thurstaston Heath were given to the National Trust by Sir Alfred Paton in memory of his brother, Captain Morton Brown Paton, who lost his life on the Gallipoli Peninsula, and of other Wirral men killed in the First World War. Morton was a captain in South Lancashire Regiment who was killed on 7 August 1915. This was the first property to be given to the Trust as a memorial to the fallen of the First World War. Sir Alfred was a great local benefactor to universities, sports clubs, libraries and churches, as well as to the National Trust. He added land to the original gift in 1917 and 1918. The land adjoins Thurstaston Common." Nastional Trust
