Madderty lies south of the A85 (Perth - Crieff Road). I think this actually stands in enclosed ground near St. Davids? which is closeby.

PERTHSHIRE ADVERTISER: 29.09.1920

MADDERTY

MEMORIAL UNVEILED


Close to the village of St. David’s, Madderty Moor, forms an ideal setting for the whinstone cairn which has been erected to the memory of the men belonging to the parish of Madderty who fell in the war. The site has been granted free by Captain Cochrane, D.S.O., Springfield, Cupar, the proprietor of the Madderty Estate, and the memorial, as was stated at the dedication ceremony on Saturday, will be a landmark in the parish to illumine the past and inspire the future. The names of the fallen, inscribed on a marble slab on the cairn, are as follows:- Peter Anderson, William Cumming, Wm. Ferguson, James M’Culloch, Thos. M’Intosh, James Philip, Joseph Rankin, John Turpie, and Robert H. MacLagan Wedderburn.
Deeply impressive was the dedication service, many of the audience being visibly affected. Mr James Lennox, Redhills, Chairman of the Committee, presided, and those present included:- The Earl of Ancaster; Major Young, Auchterarder; Major Haig, D.S.O., Crieff; Provost Mungall, Crieff; Rev. L. C. M. Wedderburn and Rev. James Burnett, R.G.A.; Rev. George Henderson and Mrs Henderson, Monzie; the Rev. J. C. Muir and Mrs Muir, Fowlis Wester; the Rev. James Brown and Miss Brown, Madderty Manse; the Rev. J. C. Campbell, Tibbermore; the Rev. Mr Logie, Aberdalgie; Mrs Hay, Cultmalundie; Mrs Lennox, Redhills; Mr and Mrs MacLagan, Williamston; Mr and Mrs G. I. Brown, Cloag; Mr and Mrs Anderson, Parkside; Mr and Mrs Cameron, Drumharvie; Mr and Mrs James Young, Bellyclone; Mr J. M. Templeman, schoolmaster, Tibbermore; Mr Ironside, schoolmaster, Madderty; Mr Robertson, Crieff; Miss Kerr, The Abbey; Mrs Elder; Mrs Ritchie, Cowgask; Mr and Mrs James Drummond, Little Fold; Mr David Sim; Mr John M’Intosh; Mr John Graham, Tippermallo; Mr T. W. Reid, Mr Thomas Robertson, and Mr Paton, Methven; Mr M’Lean, Madderty, &c. The Dedication service was conducted by Rev. L. C. M. Wedderburn and the Rev. James Burnet, Madderty, and the unveiling of the monument was performed by the Earl of Ancaster. A Lament was played by Pipe-Major Kennedy, Perth, and “The Last Post” was sounded by James Stewart and H. MacGregor. A short impressive address was delivered by the Rev. George Henderson, Monzie and the custody of the cairn was handed over to Madderty Parish Council by Mr David Sim, Carsehead, a member of the committee, Mr John M’Intosh, Newra, the chairman of the council, formally accepted. A guard of honour was provided by the Madderty Boy Scouts under Lieut. Irvine, and the service of praise was led by the Perth Salvation Army Band. Tribute was paid to the work of the sculptor (Mr G. Christie), architect (Mr H. J. Bell), and contractor (Mr M’Niven) by Mr Lennox, who also voiced the thanks of the gathering to the Earl of Ancaster, while a similar courtesy was extended to the Memorial Committee and the chairman by Provost Mungall, Crieff.
