Date of Death Place of Burial Regiment or Ship Home address
Across Merseyside at least 30,000 men and women were lost in the Great War, with hardly a street untouched by grief. The effect on local communities of loss on this scale is almost impossible to comprehend.
Street by street the numbers are fearful but perhaps easier to imagine:
Fourteen lost from Albert Edward Road in Kensington;
Seven lost from Albert Road in Birkdale;
Five lost from Alderley Road in Hoylake;
Twenty-one lost from Alderson Road in Wavertree;
Six lost from Annesley Road in Seacombe;
Twenty-five lost from Arlington Street in Kirkdale;
Seven lost from Atherton Street in St. Helens;
Fourteen lost from Aubrey Street in Everton;
. . . . . . . . . the list is endless, and yet more are to be found.

The impact house by house is illustrated by the stories of the nineteen men of Antonio Street, Bootle who left their homes in the service of their country, never to return.
