The Scottish Provident War Memorial used to be located in the firm's offices in 6 St Andrew Square in Edinburgh.

In 2000 Scottish Provident was taken over by Abbey and in 2003 the brand disappeared. In 2004 the St Andrew Sq building was closed and is still empty today.

Operations moved to Glasgow. Does anyone know where the memorial is? In the Scottish Provident 150th anniversary book published in 1987 a photograph of the memorial was printed.

There are 12 Great War names and 8 Second World War names.
