Now that we have been running for nearly two years there is a little of bit of forum administration to be done.

For example there are some threads out there where we need photographs. We may not have photographs of the name panels or even of the memorial itself. We may need up to date photographs as well.

Other threads might not have a location, Ordnance Survey reference or a UKNIWM entry.

We will also start adding unveiling details so if they haven’t been posted we’ll list them here.

There will probably be other things needing some attention which I haven’t thought of but will be listed here too.

We will start making up a list here covering all this area’s memorials, civic, church, regimental etc. If we come across something that will need actioned the Mods. can add it to this list. If you see something that needs updated please post in this thread and we can update the list.

I think that is Annes own photo, so scratch that off the "to do" list. We still need photos of the name panels, though.

The above entries need to be corrected and tidied up. The correct details have been on these threads for a while. Any query send me a PM.

Anne has passed me some more photographs of Dyce War Memorial and these have now been added to the first post in the thread.

Cheers

A church memorial which is hopefully still in the parish church

‘The Scotsman’ - 2nd April 1921

Clatt Church (Aberdeenshire)
The pre-Reformation stone font has been replaced in the church by the Woman's Guild, which also made a gift of a copper baptismal vessel as a memorial of the members of the church who fell in the war. Rev. Andrew Gray, B.D. dedicated it, and Mrs Fellowes Gordon, Knockespock , unveiled it

It is still there. The copper vessel described is a circular dish which sits in the stone font, it has not replaced it.
The following is engraved round the outer edge.

GIFTED TO THE KIRK OF CLATT BY THE WOMEN'S GUILD.
To the Glory of God and in grateful memory of those who died for Liberty and Righteousness in the Great War 1914-1919.
- W.B. ANDERSON - JAMES DICK - W. HOME - F. MARR - GEO. RITCHIE - D. TAYLOR- A. WRIGHT -


Clatt War Memorial commemorates these men and two others.

Thanks for the confirmation Jim, with it being the parish church I was hoping it would still be there.

Regards

If you look up the 1:25,000 scale Ordnance Survey map at NJ 947 431 it shows a war memorial at Clochcan. However if I look up Google Street View for the same place there is no memorial in sight.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps

Can someone double check the Google maps location to check I'm in the right place.

Thanks

Adam

There is no such place.
I think you are referring to Clochan, near Buckie. Formerly in Banffshire, now under Moray

Hi Adam and Jim,

Google Streetmap shows a small war memorial there, round the corner from the view you gave the link for.

Google streetmap view of war memorial at Clochcan.

It appears to say:

MEMORIAL CAIRN
AT THE 23 SCHOLARS
WHO NEVER RETURNED
1914 - 1918


The text is blurred on Google Maps streetview.

A contribution on the Geograph website shows the building behind the memorial to be a former school, now used as a house.

The memorial and school (closed 1957) are also mentioned on:
http://www.buchanonline.co.uk/visitpeterhead/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=198&Itemid=199 .

Well spotted. I wonder if it has been moved? It looks like it was a school memorial rather than a civic one then.

Many thanks for taking the time to look for it.

Adam

This is not Clochan, Banffshire as I suggested.

This is memorial to the late pupils of Clochcan School, hence the confusion.

The former Clochcan School near Auchnagatt is now a dwelling.
