St. John’s Church, Duke Street, Hamilton ML3 7DT

OS Grid Ref: NS 724553



St John’s was created in 1834 in the Parish of Hamilton. At that time, the Parish had two ministers. The building in Leechlee Road of today which we now know as The Old Parish Church was their building.
As the town grew, a group of parishioners committed to forming a second congregation gathered round the second Parish minister, Reverend William Buchan. Money was obtained through subscriptions to erect our building in Duke Street, Hamilton, which opened for worship towards the end of November 1834.

I never noticed what a superb job the craftsmen who built this memorial did when John first posted it. It's unusual to see ranks, units and ages on a church memorial - a nice touch.
