UKNIWM Ref: 44360
there is also a chancel window and a rededication plaque that forms part of this memorial.

OS Map Ref: NX 808 598

This is the parish memorial even though it is inside the church. The church has sometimes been known as 'the church you can see' because of its elevated position in the landscape. It is signposted from the main road between Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas.

I need to return to re-do all the photographs in this church. This was previously posted in church memorials but has now been moved to civic.
