North Leith Coburg Street United Free Church War Memorial (later Harper Memorial Church)
Location: Now in North Leith Parish Church, Madiera Street

Thanks to Andrew Grant for passing on these photographs

The North Leith UF Church Coburg Street was renamed the Harper Memorial Church in 1929. It later merged with Leith St Ninian's Church and the Coburg Street church building located opposite the old North Leith burial ground was later demolished.






Thanks

Adam
