The sign at this church states it is St Machans, but the memorial says Larkhall Parish. Perhaps there has been an amalgamation in the past. I only photographed one side as the gates were shut. Perhaps there are St Machans names on the other side. Anyone from Larkhall on here who can confirm this?

There are 3 parishes in Larkhall - Chalmers, St Machan's and Trinity - authority http://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/contact/contactmap17.htm#L

In 1929 Larkhall Parish Church was renamed St Machan's when the Church of Scotland and United Free Church merged.
