About the memorial: Rather heretical to have to choose "altar" from the menu as it is a Communion Table. Congregationalists regarded altars as irredeemably papist! Scottish War Memorials Project entry is unaware of its origins, but the IWM Register confidently attributes it to Skene Street. 40 WW1 names on the front four panels, 22 from WW2 on the sides.
