Not to be confused with the village of Crawfordjohn, indeed they're not even particularly close to each other.

I take it this memorial has been moved? The location was by the kirk when I took these photos in the early 1990's.

The church is closed and is now a private residence, currently up for sale. The current location is next to the village hall which probably accounts for its move, a sensible idea in this case I think.
