This is the bomb damage that was caused to Darley Dene in March 1941. The house was then used for fire-fighting exercises and then demolished..

The Boode Memorial was origianlly moved in 1914 for road widening but did suffer some damage in the air raid but was repaired.

Does any one know where i can find any information on the troops that were hospitalised here, ? as my Mum's father was killed in this house during the bombing raid.

My Grand father was recovering from an injury here , all my mum knows that he was in the British Army when He died here, I have tried the usual army records, but unless you were an officer not much info was kept..


I just hope there are local news paper reports on the bombing but up to now I have not come across any, !

I do know it was a girls school being used my the Army during the war, and i have visited area of the site where there is a new girls school built now.

The new girl's school is much further West along Breck Road (towards the Village) than the location of Darley Dene. I am still looking for my maps to confirm but I think the house Darley Dene (previously The Slopes) was more or less where the car wash is now

Stuart Rebecca was an old friend of my fathers & Stuarts daughter married Frank Ifield at St. Hillary's church. Another useless piece of information!

Hi Snod,
Did you have any luck with your maps ?

I put them "somewhere safe" - and you KNOW that means I can't find them. There is quite a packet of maps so they MUST be here somewhere.

A little research...

Here is map of 1898. Note to ignore where the Boode Monument is because it was later moved so should not be taken as point on the map.

Visited emapping and took a screenshot. Note it says that Darley Dene is where the warehouse is of Huws Grays.

Darley Dene was located where the "B" of the B5145 sign is on this.

Here's the 1910 O.S. map. Quite a few changes since 1898.

I answer so much info, here and via site e-mails, that sometimes I miss some questions relating to Wallasey. A reminder in a post to bring it back to the attention of forum members is required sometimes (as well as a prod with a stick to the ribs!!)

Hope the info is useful.
