Temple-Anniesland Church, 869 Crow Road, Glasgow, G13 1LE.

It is a red sandstone Gothic-style church built by Badenoch & Bruce in 1905. The adjoining hall was the original United Presbyterian church built in 1899 by Alexander Petrie. The church has a U-plan interior with red pine panelled gallery and pews.
Many thanks to Mrs. Isabel Barrie, President of the Women’s Guild, for allowing me access to the church.




The war memorial is from Temple Parish Church (now demolished) which united with Anniesland Cross Church in 1984.




The centre panel is inscribed as follows:
TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN THE MEMORY OF THOSE FROM THIS
CONGREGATION WHO IN THE GREAT WAR GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR
KING AND COUNTRY 1914 – 1918

Along the base of the memorial is written
THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE



The left hand panel is inscribed with the following names:

Capt. D. W. Hunter DSO West Yorks
Capt. G. L. Sommerville KOR Lancs
Pte James Allan HLI
Pte. Oswald Baillies HLI
Pte. William R. Barr KOSB
Cpl. P. M. Cameron Royal Scots
Pte. A. A. Carrodus KOSB
Pte. Hugh Connell Black Watch
Pte. R. A. Cruikshanks S. Rifles
Cpl. G. B. Cowan HLI
Cpl. Thomas Cowan RE
Pte. Robert Fleming Cameron Highs.
Pte Henry Garnett HLI
Pte. Hamilton Gordon S. Rifles



The right hand panel is inscribed with the following names:

Lieut. Wilmot Parker Smith Scot. Horse
Lieut. Peter Ross RFC
Pte. A.B. Gray S. Rifles
Pte. Robert Gray South Africans
Pte. John Henderson A&SH
Pte. J. D. Kerr Seaforths
Cpl. P.M. Macphail RE

Gun. Harry Rintoul RFA
Cpl. Alex. Reid Smith S. Rifles
Pte. William Vallance HLI
Pte. James Wallace HLI
Engr. D. B. Willock M. Marine



The emblem top centre is inscribed:
Nec Tamen Consumebatur (Latin) – “Yet it was not consumed” an illusion to Exodus 3:2 and the Burning Bush. This is the motto of the Church of Scotland.

John Houston
