Pollokshields West UF Church, Shields Road, Glasgow.
Corner of Shields Road and Nithsdale Road



The church has now been converted into an old folk’s home.

Extract from the booklet - Pollokshields West UF Church Glasgow 1875 – 1925.
“As the War dragged on, the Roll of Honour increased in length and contained in all 127 names, apart from the ladies who engaged in various forms of War service. Our Memorial Communion Table, which was unveiled at a memorable service on 21st November, 1920, records the names of 26 young lives which were given for their country.”

Pollokshields parish Church is just a short distance along Shields Road. It is possibly there?
