Thi parish is the first one outside the old City boundary (I use a 1960's OS map).

The old parish ch is on the A696 Wellington Rd just north of a roundabout that goes off to an industrial estate full of giant sheds for the oil industry. You can park on Nigg Kirk Rd.

There are some War Graves in the churchyard as well as the WM.

Cove Bay is in the parish, home of Cove Rangers FC, often wondered where it was, now I know.

Sorry, not sure what you mean "If I want to add at the top.........."

I just post info and photos I find for your use. I don't check the UKNI first, should I do so?

The confusion I seem to have caused re Birse/Finzean reflects the fact that I use the 1960's 1" OS maps that have the parishes named and boundaries marked; what I didn't realise was how many boundary changes and combining of parishes happened after 1918.

Plus the fact that many WMs just say "this parish/district" without naming it means there is bound to be confusion if you are trying to produce a definitve list of WMs.
