👬 Chavasse Twins - Inspiring a Nation 👬

Noel and Christopher Chavasse were identical sons of Rev Francis James Chavasse (Bishop of Liverpool) and his wife Enid (nee Maude), who also had twin daughters included in their 7 children.

Living at no. 19 Abercromby Square, both boys attended Liverpool College and were present (with their father) when King Edward VII, escorted by Queen Alexandra, lay the foundation stone of the Anglican Cathedral in 1904.

The twins excelled on the athletic track and represented Great Britain at the 1908 Olympics.

Noel was one of only three people ever rewarded the Victoria Cross TWICE and ran with the Sefton Harriers when he became a member of our club.

Christopher received a Military Cross, OBE and later became Bishop of Rochester.

The brothery bond between the two also inspired the stage play Brothers in Arms.

The Chavasse family were often seen 'taking the air' around our grounds, maybe that Aigburth air contributed to the twin sisters (May and Marjorie), who made the Guinness Book of Records in 1988 at the oldest Living Twins in the World. They were then 102 years old!
