Born in Greenock, Scotland, John Laird was one of Birkenhead's most famous sons and also its first mayor. A partner in the family shipbuilding firm of Laird Brothers in Birkenhead, the shipyard quickly established a name for itself in the building ships of iron and between 1829 and 1947, over 1,100 vessels of all sizes and types slid down the Laird slipways into the Mersey.He is buried in the grounds of Birkenhead Priory, next to his yard. His statue stands in Hamilton Square in the centre of Birkenhead.
