About the memorial: Previously in the church in High Park Street, Toxteth and found by local resident and community champion Irene Milson. Irene passed the memorial over to then Lord Mayor Councillor Gary Millar so that he may investigate where it came from and find out who the named individuals were. The Lord Mayor had previous success in finding and saving the Stanley Abattior Memorial only a few months previously. Together with Bootle historian Paul Ford they found that this world war 1 war memorial came from St Peter's Church in High Park Street. Their research including a chat with a Mr Thwaite who attended St Peters from 1938 to 2006. He remembers 2 memorials from St Peters and thinks the steward "Harry" who lived on High Park Street may have taken the memorials for safe keeping and kept them at home - either in his shed or garden (this one was found in a garden under the top soil in High Park Street - and later it was discovered that it was Harry's home). Interestingly the word used was "memorials" and its thought that 2 memorials were originally held at St Peters - one for the long closed Wellington Road Methodist Church and the other being St Peters own memorial. We are told that the Wellington Road memorial is now held with the Liverpool Scottish museum There are 16 names listed on this WW1 war memorial. They are from the Dingle and Toxteth areas of Liverpool. Some of those listed do not appear in Liverpool Town Hall's Roll of Honour and therefore were added by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Councillor Gary Millar at a ceremony in our Hall of Remembrance on 3rd June 2014.
