Greenbank Parish Church, 36 Eaglesham Road, Clarkston, G76 7DJ

A little bit of the history about the church.
On 24th January 1881, a meeting was held in Clarkston Tollhouse to consider the erection of a Church of Scotland. Present were the four ministers of the surrounding parishes of East Kilbride, Eastwood, Mearns and Carmunnock and forty laymen.
Ground for the church was gifted by Mr. J. D. Hamilton of Greenbank and it was opened 13th April 1884. Its architects were McKissock and William G. Rowan (1846 – 1924).
The church took its name from the Greenbank estate founded by tobacco lord Robert Allason in the 18th century. The Hamilton family owned it from 1797 to 1962.

Many thanks to the minister, Rev. Jeanne Roddick for allowing me access to the church and to the church officer, John Meek for showing me round the church.




On entering the church, on the facing wall there are three plaques dedicated to those who lost their lives in WW1 and WW2. The plaques are inlaid into a wooden frame.

You can find out a bit more about the "Torrent" Here:

http://www.rnpatrolservice.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=229

As far as I can determine, HM Armed Yacht Torrent (336 tons) was completed in 1930 as the civilian vessel Anna Marie. She was requisitioned by the Admiralty in September 1939 for anti-submarine duties under the Command of Cdr F M SIMON Rtd and attached to the 80th Anti-Submarine Group based at Swansea. In late 1940/early 1941 she was reassigned to the 86th Anti-Submarine Group (or the Group was possibly renamed) based at Swansea and was refitted at Bowling on the River Clyde under the Command of Cdr Montague W NOEL Rtd before being renamed Torrent and based at Portland. She was sunk by mine off Falmouth in position 50 degs 05 mins North, 4 degs 57 mins West on 6 April 1941. (Colledge: Ship RN Vol2; Lenton/Colledge: Warships WW2).
