These have all been saved by the parishoners and relocated to Gardner memorial church in Brechin, they come from various churches in Brechin now demolished.

Unfortunately even the church minister has no idea from which church each originates.

These first ones are are WW1 and WW2 set, the plaque below appears to be the second world war additions.



A Great War Memorial.

It will have to be confirmed but I suspect the last Great War Memorial is from St. Ninians U.F. Church. Information from UKNIWM;

ST NINIANS CHURCH
BRECHIN

1963 THE CHURCH WAS DISSOLVED AND THE PLAQUE WAS GIVEN INTO THE CARE OF THE THEN TOWN COUNCIL
(TOWN COUNCIL STORE)

2001 PLAQUE WAS RE-DISCOVERED AND RE-HOMED IN GARDNER MEMORIAL CHURCH

Inscription
TO/THE GLORY OF GOD/ AND/ IN PROUD AND LOVING MEMORY/ OF THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS OF/ THIS CONGREGATION WHO GAVE THEIR/ LIVES IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1919./ (NAMES)

UKNIWM REF: 57443

The WMR project has been contacted by a member of the public who has been researching these memorials. While he has no idea where they came from either he believes that both of this pair of tablets are WW1, and thus, probably, from different churches.
To support this below is his working for who the names on the lower tablet are (you may notice that William F Dear is missing from this list)-
