Alford - Gordon District
UKNIWM Ref No. 8550

The Alford war memorial is a grey granite cross which stands on a tapering pedestal which in turn rests on a base of two low steps. The commemoration is in black lead lettering on the face of the cross shaft, with the names of the dead listed on the faces of the pedestal.

The monument stands within the kirkyard.






I don't have a transcription for this memorial and some of the lettering was very weathered so there may be some errors in the list below. Specifically there was some difficulty in differentiating the letters G and C on some christian names, and reading battalion numbers.
