Hi all.
Please does anyone have any Photos or Memories of St Laurence's RC Church in Beckwith St or St Laurence's RC School in Park St/Watson St Birkenhead.

I am very keen to for any info at all on the Parish and its People and I have been trawling the internet for info for weeks with very little results frown

All my family as far back as our Great Grandparent's went to St Laurence's so its a subject I would love to know more about.

Thank you in advance

My Dad told us(his kids) that on his way to work one morning(he worked in Lairds) he passed St Laurence's church and it was roped off just inside the gate,he ducked under the rope to see why..he made a speedy retreat as there was an unexplored bomb in the church grounds.Funny place to drop and not go off?God works in mysterious ways...

Went to Laurie's from 1945 till I left to go to Birkenhead Technical College. Mother Borgia headmistress, Miss Martin, Miss Anderson, Miss Crosby, Miss Humphreys, Miss Shepherd were some of the teachers in the girls school. Mother Magdalin was a very young nun and she put on a great show with her class where they all acted out "Phil the fluter"- great days. Mr. Quigley was boy's teacher. I can remember quite a few girls (now all about 73/74). Days out to the Philharmonic orchestra was a fabulous treat. Also remember the singing festivals-more so because I was never in them-awful singing voice-which I recognise now but not years ago!!

Any chance of putting them on here. I'm sure there would be a lot of interest.
