1/6th Battalion The King's (Liverpool) Regiment

I was given the following information by a member of the Liverpool and South West Lancs Family History Society Forum:

"As so many of your men were 6th or 1/6th King's, is it worth a mention that their HQ was in [EDIT Upper Parliament Street  UPPER WARWICK ST], probably not quite in the parish but close enough to attract recruits? Princes Park Barracks was demolished between the wars and rebuilt, was renamed Crawford House after Sir Douglas C who was post war chairman of the West Lancs T&AFA. After the TA left it was pulled down again and is now quite different."

I've had a quick search and this website has more information about these barracks and the 1/6th King's.
