From “The Scotsman” 1st March 1921

HAMILTON

The memorial tablet bearing the names of the fourteen members of Saffronhall U.F. Church, Hamilton who fell in the war was unveiled on Sunday at a dedicatory service by the Rev. David Forfar, Glasgow, a former pastor of the congregation . The tablet is erected in the vestibule of the church


From what I can find the Saffronhall U.F. Church is now this church, which sits on the corner of Saffronhall Lane. However there are sixteen names on this memorial, not fourteen.

Is this the memorial of the former Saffronhall U.F. Church? Have two names been added?
