Arran War Memorial Hospital, Lamlash, Isle of Arran
UKNIWM Ref: 9777
OS map ref: NS035321
Postcode: KA27 8LF

The Isle of Arran War Memorial Hospital in Lamlash was raised on the suggestion of the Marchioness of Graham (later to become The Duchess of Montrose) as a fitting memorial to those who gave their lives in the First World War. It was built, equipped and maintained by voluntary subscriptions.

Inside the reception area are 2 large bronze plaques listing those who died from Arran in the 2 World Wars, listed by geographical area on Arran.
89 names are listed for the Great War, 38 for the Second World War.
As such, this memorial IS THE War Memorial for Arran.

However, as will be seen, there are discrepancies in the names listed.

The plaques are a nightmare to photograph with poor lighting and flash only bounces off the metal.
