About the memorial: Posts: 7627 Location: Lanarkshire, Scotland Posted: Sat Nov 21, 2015 9:07 pm Post subject: South Church of Scotland, Kirkintilloch Location: Kirkintilloch Baptist Church, 52 Townhead, Kirkintilloch. This memorial is currently not on public display, although a decision on where to display it may be taken some time in the future. From the Kirkintilloch Baptist Church website: "In 1951 the church, still situated in Regent Street and looking to expand its premises, were offered the South Church of Scotland in Townhead as a free gift. The church gladly accepted and on Sunday 9th September 1951 the first Baptist services were held in our former building. The congregation was swelled by 44 members of the church of Scotland who chose to remain in the church and join the Baptist congregation. The hall in Regent Street was in turn passed on to the YMCA and later to the 1st Kirkintilloch, 32nd Glasgow Company of the Boys Scouts and is still in their possession." The contemporary press report describes the memorial thus - "The memorial is of white marble, with a dark vein, and measures 3ft. in height, by 2ft. 3in. broad. It is placed in the north gable, hung on the surface of the wall. It is in the form of a sunk panel, whereon are the names of the fallen, surmounted by floral swag (laurel leaves fastened with a ribbon), and surrounded by a Cavetto moulding, with pateras at intervals. The lettering is of the Roman character, and is done in lead. "
