Birkenhead Institute Old Boys

World War 1 - Memorial

This is a list of the Old Boys who gave their lives in the Great War. Names are taken from the School Memorial Plaque, currently located in the stairwell of the Birkenhead Central Library.

There seems to be a discrepency between the number of names on the original plaque, (83), and the accepted number (88) of old boys who gave their lives. Thanks to Alun Hughes (1966/73) and Les Highton (1966/71). I now have all 88 names in the table. There are also some discrepencies in names and initials, see list.

Special thanks to Alun Hughes (1966/73) and Les Highton (1966/71) for the huge amount of energy they have put in to researching and documenting these Old Boys.
