Kennoway - Kirkcaldy District
UKNIWM Ref No. 8530

The Kennoway war memorial is a grey granite celtic cross with wheel-head and celtic designs carved in shallow relief on the cross-head face; and a wreath in shallow relief at the base of the cross shaft. The cross stands on a tapering pedestal of rustic granite with the commemoration and names of the dead in lead lettering on the face of granite tablets set into the face of the pedestal.
The monument stands in front of the kirk on the Cupar Road.
This community has paid a high price for the 'Armed Peace' with five names added to the memorial from post World War II conflicts.
The inscription at the top of the pedestal reads:
ERECTED IN LOVING MEMORY OF THE MEN
OF THIS PARISH WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES
FIGHTING FOR THEIR COUNTRY'S HONOUR
