Greetings, I just discovered this message board tonight. I am a community consultant running a series of events for Falkirk Council Community Planning Partnership, one of which is taking place this weekend in Fankerton and might be of interest to some of you on this particular thread. Here is a link to find out more about this:
http://tinyurl.com/c5r92j

We would be interested in your input to the conversation on Saturday 21st March at the Fankerton Village Hall from 11 am to 1 pm. If you wish to put anything on the map we are creating, relevant to memorials in the area along River Carron in Fankerton or Stoneywood, you might find the event of interest. It is of course free, etc. so hopefully it is Ok to post this on your board. We are trying a variety of ways to reach the various interest groups who care about the development and preservation of the River Carron, definitely including its history. The Carron Iron Works have figured muchly into the discussions so far.

Feel free to email me for more information.

Cheers,

Michelle McCallum

Falkirk Herald 24th July 1920

Carrongrove Paper Company’s War Memorial

At the right-hand side of the porch of the Carrongrove Paper Company’s office at Glencarron, Denny, a very handsome memorial tablet which serves to mark the services rendered by their employees to their King and country during the great war has just been erected. There was no formal unveiling, but the employees were respectfully invited by notices posted throughout the works to avail themselves of the privilege of inspecting the tablet. The memorial, which is in the finest bronze, cast in bas-relief, was designed and executed by Mr. Archibald Hamilton, Glasgow, and is a beautiful and highly artistic production. At the outbreak of war the male employees of the company numbered 225. Of these, 104 enlisted, which is equal to 46 per cent. The roll of the fallen numbers 22. It will thus be seen that the record is a noteworthy one.

The article then goes on to list all the names.

Recently in the Falkirk Herald, there was an article about this memorial.

I will scan it at a later date and post in here, but the jist of the story is that the Denny & Dunipace Heritage Society now have possession of it and the plan is to have it erected in the new Denny Library when it opens.
