Location: Longniddry Parish Church
OS Ref: tbc

Thanks to Caroline Gerard for this photograph.



Longniddry Parish Church was built in the 1920s so it only has a Second World War Memorial.
Some of these names are also on the Gladsmuir memorial (Gladsmuir, Longniddry and Macmerry are all in the same parish of Gladsmuir)
