Savoch and Auchnagatt - Banff & Buchan District, Peterhead Area.
UKNIWM Ref No. 8552
OS REf: NJ 930 401

The memorial takes the form of a polished pink granite obelisk with a square classical style pedestal. The commemoration and names of the dead are listed on the faces of the pedestal. The memorial stands in the kirkyard. This is the parish memorial but as there is no other memorial that I know of I think this can be treated as the civic memorial of the community.
