If you are looking for Liff Church it lies in the village of Liff approx 1 mile to the south of Muirhead village. There is a 1st World War memorial there, on the east of the church, similar in style to this Muirhead of Liff one. Soldiers local to Liff village who died in the 2nd World War are commemmorated by a small plaque inside Liff Church
