This memorial is a stone bench seat, backed by a stone tablet listing those who served and died in WW1 from Nether Pollock. I assume these were all men from the tenantry and staff of Pollock House. The memorial is situated on the wall of the walled garden just to the right of Pollock house, as you look at the front of the house from the bank of the River Cart.









WW1 roll of honor including names of fallen. Names arranged alphabetically by surname. Rank, forename or intial, middle initial, surname, decorations and regiment or service given. ĎKilled or diedí written after regiment. Names in two columns with dedication inscription above.
