About the memorial: This stained glass window, by Oscar Paterson, is located in the north west corner of the Church, adjacent to the pulpit. It commemorates those members of the congregation, and adherents, who died in the First World War. The motif of the subject matter of the window is 'Obedience' and 'Resurrection', illustrated by 'David at the Brook filling Pebbles into his Wallet' and 'The Women at the Sepulchre'. The left hand light is devoted to David, typical of obedience and self sacrifice: 'Thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.' Above is an angel with a shield blazoned with the 'Patient Ox', a medieval emblem. On the right is the panel, 'Women at the Sepulchre' - Matt. xxviii. At the apex of the two lights is the Dove of the Holy Spirit, and on the same panel are inscribed Alpha and Omega. The base of the window is occupied by the Dedication and the names commemorated. The Memorial was Dedicated at a Service in the Church on Wednesday 17 May 1922 at 2.30 pm. The Officiating Ministers were - The Rev Thomas Lawrie, M.A., UF Church, Laurencekirk, The Rev Thomas Scott, T.D., M.A., Minsiter of the Parish, The Very Rev A Wallace Williamson, C.V.O., D.D., Dean of The Thistle and Chapel Royal.
