Orrock Place U.F Church *No photographs as yet*

This marble tablet was unveiled in the vestibule of Orrock Place U.F Church on November 26th, 1922.
Colonel, the Rev W.W Beveridge, T.D., officiated, along with the Rev. James Steedman, minister of the congregation.

I have a list of 24 names recorded on the memorial for the Great War and 4 recorded on it for WW2.

The fate of the memorial is currently unknown by myself.
After the former church was sold, the names were recorded in the combined Book of Remembrance in St.Mary's Old Parish Church.


UKNIWM - not listed

I'm disappointed to say that the tablet was not transferred to St.Mary's when the church closed.
So it's fate is unknown.
