About the memorial: Marble Tablet, and installation of electric lighting in the Church (that latter part of the memorial is now obviously lost). St Gabriel's (which was at 39 to 41 Greenfield Street) closed in 1988 according to records at the National Archives of Scotland. Govan Old Church closed as a Church in 2007, when worship moved to what is now Govan and Linthouse Parish Church which is a few steps east down Govan Road. The building is now an exhibition space, open daily. Note also the unusual end date of the war, as 1921. Two extra names were clearly added to the tablet, subsequently. Alexander Whalley, one of the added names, died on 24 January 1917 so this was clearly just an omission originally. Note- Just because there is no photograph taken on 16 April 2022 when I visited does NOT imply that the memorial is not still in the church. For conservation reasons lighting levels inside are very low, there are various interpretation boards, and my visit to the Church was unplanned. I was just passing, on a tight schedule, on a journey to elsewhere, and had not prepared for the visit, so I was not looking for the memorial.
