New Elgin, Ashgrove & Moycroft
UKNIWM Ref no: 8709

The New Elgin memorial is a grey granite pedestal surmounted by a carved figure of a Seaforth Highlander. The sculptor is believed to be the Aberdeen granite mason Robert Warrack Morrison. More information can be found on Morrison at:
http://www.leopardmag.co.uk/feats/42/robert-morrison-king-of-the-granite-carvers
The memorial is located in Cemetery Drive, New Elgin Road.









(Apologies in advance, I had the usual problems when transcribing the names below in differentiating the letters 'C' and 'G' and there were a couple of other inscriptions I wasn't sure about so there may be a couple of errors here)

I also came across this article from The Northern Scot which gives some insight into the controversy which could surround the erection of these memorials and the social upheaval of the times.
