UKNIWM Ref: Not listed

Located in the entrance of Penninghame Parish Church at OS Map Ref NX 410 654

The memorial was moved at some time in the past from St Johnís church, just a few yards along to Penninghame Parish Church on the closure of the former. The former St Johnís church is now Newton Stewart museum.

Penninghame parish church.
