Stoneyburn War Memorial Inscription for UKNIWM


The memorial is made out of grey stone probably granite. It stands 2 to 3m tall and is a square section obelisk mounted on a plinth and block of semi dressed stone. The main face of the obelisk faces the main road. There is a dedication inscription on the obelisk with the WW1 names of fallen on the block below. The WW2 names of fallen are on both of the side faces. Below the main dedication inscription on the obelisk is a carved wreath with 1914 1918 on a banner at the bottom of the wreath. The memorial is set in a garden full of colourful annuals and surrounded by a low metal railing.

UKNIWM Ref: 53722

I can see from the photo that one name has been added to the WW1 list but it appears that 2 must have been added because UKNIWM has it down as 9 names, whereas there are now 11.
