I can't remember if i read it on here or was just told about it. Rawcliff rd, Tranmere, runs between Raffles rd and Willmer rd, church on the end, one side of the road has terraced houses and the other side has pensioners bungalows, Bungalows look about 50s style, apparently houses that where sited there were bombed, would like more info if anyone has any available.

That's all I've got mate.

Wilmer Road got hit on 12/13 Mar 1941 which was during the worst raid on Birkenhead, 288 killed and 275 seriously injured.

The 12/13 Dec 1940 raid there were 16 killed and 80 injured.

Hey DD that must have been about the same time as Beech and MIlton Rd's got hit. I always remember the prefabs and all the empty bombies around that area. From memory the bombs missed Larch Rd and then hit Wilmer.

YEs, Milton Road got hit on the 12/13 March 1941 as well, I don't have any details for Beech Road.

Rawcliffe is a popular surname, in the 1841 census, whilst there were many spread around England, the greatest density by far was in Lancashire.
