The 1916 directory you put up is incorrect, the Birkenhead Arms address was 146 Chester St, numbers for that side of Grange St started at number 5, I think its the first property past the garage. The 1881 and 1911 census record the pubs as following, 1881, Grange St, number9, Beer house, 15, Borough Inn, 25, Commercial Hotel. 1911, Occupants, 9 Beer house Keeper, 25, Licensed Victualler.
The crosses I agree with Dave, likely to be a memorial display area and/or storage.

God help us,
Don't send Jesus,
This is no place for children.
