The memorial names this as East Kilbride Parish Church but it is now know as the Old Parish Church. I'm not sure when the renaming took place.

The church is located in what is known as "The Village". This is the original part of East Kilbride, before the new town was built.

The church can be a little tricky to find. It's better to park and walk to it, as you can drive past it, seeing it all the time without ever actually getting near it!

The WW1 memorial is situated on the outside of the church, on what appears to be a more recent addition to the main church building.

The Second World War memorial is a small metal plaque just below the Great War plaque.
