KIRKTON OF CLATT
OS Map Ref: NJ 539 260
The memorial at Clatt is an example of the workmanship of Robert Warrack Morrison whilst working for Morren & Co, Holland St, Aberdeen
Below is the WW2 memorial set into the gable wall of Clatt Parish Kirk. Due to fears about the plaque's future, when the kirk was abandoned as a regular place of worship some years ago, these name were added to the WW1 memorial. The Clatt Auld Kirk is now owned by a local trust and it's future secured. Thus the plaque remains in place, the WW2 casualties being commemorated twice.

If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
