Dalziel High School, Crawford Street, Motherwell, ML1 3AG

OS Grid Ref: NS 746566



Dalziel High School has had a long and successful career of over one hundred years. It continues to be one of the top schools in Lanarkshire. The school has seen many changes in not only the academic aspect, but within the community in which it serves. The school roll has seen drastic changes during these years, peaking during the seventies at one thousand one hundred pupils, and currently standing at just under one thousand. www.dalzielhigh.org.uk

The WW1 memorial is located in the main school building.





The War Memorial Trust was established to offer a living memorial to those former pupils and members of staff of Dalziel High School who died during the Second World War.

Well done John, I know how difficult it can be to track down these school memorials and then arrange access.

I have no record of the two ladies who appear in the Dalziel High School, Memorial Trust, Roll of Honour - Elizabeth Foy, WRNS and Valentine Smith, WAAF, both recorded as "Died as a result of War Service". Neither do they appear on both CWGC and SNWM.

Would anybody have any further information on these ladies.

Tony
