These have now been sold for development but the club worked with other local organisations to present this new memorial to take its place with the many memorials already in Hamilton Square. The statue is of Wilfred Owen, one of the Old Boys. See link to Tranmere Rovers website in the LInks section below. The Birkenhead Institute School WWI plaque is located in the central library see WMO/164413.
