This was one of the memorials which was awarded a renovation grant on 20th February through the Scottish Government's Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund:

Crookston, Inveresk Churchyard, Musselburgh, East Lothian (WM7713) Grant offer: 2,115

Extensive weather erosion of areas of the red sandstone has led to concern about the condition of the memorial. The detail of some decorative caved sections has been lost and other areas are in a fragile condition.

The grant funding will help fund repair, replacement and stabilisation works to the sandstone. In addition, the existing joints will be re-pointed using a lime mortar.

Details of memorial can be found at

James Hadden was the son of John & Alison(Young)Hadden and they resided at 43 Forthview Wallyford Musselburgh
I have been searching for this soldier for ages now, (but the family have been looking for him for 95 years) and it was only after I read an article in my local paper today that I realised that I would still be searching for it, had the family not discovered that the name had been spelt wrong on the records.

Please note the name on the CWGC records is Haddon, but the family name and that on the Memorial is Hadden
