Actually about 15 miles from Dunoon but it is on a dead end rd and you have to go through Dunoon.

The parish ch of Inverchaolain is at grid ref 091 753 on my old 1" OS map.

There is a badly weathered WM in the ch yard. I recorded the names with some dificulty into my dictaphone. Reasonably accurate, though:

"1914-19I9 to the glorious dead of Inverchaolain parish

James Muir Black, Lt, R/Scots 1897-1916
Alexander Banks McPhail, MC, Capt RGA 1896-1918

Inside the church is a plaque dedicated to the men of Inellan, Toward and Loch Scriven and the names are shown on the photo of Inellan WM.

John here are some photographs taken of the memorial some years ago. I also transcribed the names and there are a few differences with your transcription, but as you said the lettering was badly weathered.
