Scoonie - Fife

This memorial is listed in the Royal British Legion Scotland Directory of War Memorials as the Lundin war memorial although its dedication is for the Parish of Scoonie.
The Lundin Links war memorial is a tall grey granite obelisk set on a pedestal which rests on a wide raised freestone plinth. The commemoration is on a shield of polished stone on the face of the obelisk, and the names of the WWI dead are listed in black painted lettering on the polished faces of the pedestal (with two names later added from the Korean and Cyprus conflicts). The memorial is set in a memorial garden which is backed by a freestone wall and the names of the WWII dead are listed on four bronze panels set on the wall.
The monument stands in front of the kirk at the junction of Durham Crescent and the Main Road.

This is down as UKNIWM 8531 which according to their site is Largo/Lundin Links.
What then is UKNIWM 8525 Scoonie, obelisk at junction of Durie Street and Victoria Road?
Also, what is UKNIWM 5740 Leven, obelisk adjacent to A995?
Is UKNIWM site incorrect?

Confused!

The descriptions from UKNIWM are as follows:

UKNIWM 8531
A915
LUNDIN LINKS
FIFE
SCOTLAND

Type: CROSS
Other Location Details: JUNCTION OF A915 & HARBOUR WYND

OS Map Ref: NO 416 031
Inscription 'TO THE/ GLORIOUS/ MEMORY OF / THE MEN/ OF LARGO/ PARISH/ WHO FELL/ IN THE/ GREAT WAR'

So I don't think that can be this memorial if you look at the first photo.

UKNIWM 8525
SCOONIE KIRK
DURIE ST
SCOONIE
FIFE
SCOTLAND

Type: OBELISK
Denomination: CHURCH OF SCOTLAND
Other Location Details: JUNCTION OF DURIE STREET AND VICTORIA RD

OS Map Ref: NO 383 010

No inscription given but I am fairly sure this is the correct memorial for the photos.

UKNIWM 5740
LEVEN
FIFE
SCOTLAND

Type: OBELISK
Denomination: CHURCH OF SCOTLAND
Other Location Details: ADJ. A995

OS Map Ref: NO 380 000

This looks like a 'dummy' map ref to me but it seems far enough away to be a separate memorial to the other 2. I thought at first that there might be a duplicate entry, but I think these are 3 separate memorials.

If one of the mods agrees with my analysis, perhaps we should change the original UKNIWM reference?

This is definitely UKNIWM 8525.
Thanks to Mrs Aase Goldsmith for photographs and information.
First is view from entrance to mini-garden, on corner of Durie Street (A955) and Victoria Road, and adjacent to Leven Parish Church (former Scoonie Parish Church)

I think that two contributers have sent information regarding this memorial. The confusion has come in their 'naming'. One has used, quite rightly, Scoonie Parish - whilst the other has given Leven, where it is situated. The two UKNIWM Nos. 5740 & 8525 both refer to this memorial, and I have placed both in the list accordingly.

The same has happened with Largo - two refs. - same memorial. One individual has given Largo Parish (correct) whilst another has provided Lundin Links, where it is situated.

I have now amended the title of this to Scoonie Parish, WW1, Leven. I will do the same for Largo / Lundin Links
