Can someone look this up in the 1881 census please
from the 1878 post office directory

Jacksons hotel, Evander Godwin, Oxton road, Birkenhead and if it has a street number
also
while looking at click I noticed there was a Wirral Hospital (children) and wondered when it disappeared
co-ordinates 331450 by 388400

In brackets under the address is "Mersey Hotel" ???

The Wirral Hospital you are referring to was at 25 Oxton Rd, 1881 census, it may have closed when the children's hospital opened in 1883.

The original Wirral Children's Hospital was established in what had originally been a private house at 25 Oxton Road. It closed in June 1883 after the new Children's Hospital in Woodchurch Road was opened by the Duke of Westminster, and was subsequently sold for 1,075. To judge from later maps it looks as though the house was converted into business premises in the usual way, by building a new extension onto the front, but was later demolished to make way for Rostances store.

Whoops, my mistake! No 25 wasn't where Rostances was later built, but on the next block up, where the Casino is now.

I've got a feeling that's where Morton's bookshop was.

According to Gore's/Kelly's and the surviving Licence Registers Evander Godwin was licencee of the Vale Hotel at 103 Oxton Road until September 1880.
