This design is quite similar to the Cranstoun Parish Memorial here:

From The Scotsman 26 March 1921.

    WAR MEMORIALS

    YESTER PARISH. A Celtic cross, composed of Craikland stone, in memory of 18 men of Yester Parish, East Lothian, has been unveiled at Gifford by General Sir Francis Davies, of Scottish Command. There was a large attendance. There were also representatives of the local Comrades and the Boy Scouts. The Marquis of Tweeddale, in introducing Sir Francis Davies, said he hoped that the memorial would be an example to all future generations, reminding them what the noble men whose names were engraved thereon had died for, and that Britain would prove worthy of these sacrifices. Sir Francis Davies said that he had unveiled a great many memorials in different parts of the country, but he had always considered that the kind which touched him most was such as in a small parish like Gifford, where the heroes had been known to the people from their youth upwards. He alluded to the utter devastation of the Somme area, which in many respects was not unlike East Lothian, and impressed upon those at home what the Germans would have perpetrated in this country had they succeeded in landing. Having unveiled the memorial, the names of the fallen were read by the Marquis of Tweeddale, followed by the sounding of the "Last Post." Several wreaths were placed on the memorial.

I suggest this topic is re-named to Yester Parish, Gifford, East Lothian.
