Battlefield East Parish Church (Now Clincarthill Parish Church), 1220 Cathcart Road, Glasgow G42 9EU .

OS Grid Ref: NS 585612



Extract from local newspaper:-
“On Thursday 27 May 2010, two church congregations will be merging together, as one minister retires and the other takes charge.
After 33 years as minister of Battlefield East church, the Rev Alan Raeburn will take his final service on June 13. On the same day, Mount Florida church will host its last service.
It will then join Battlefield East to become Clincarthill church under the leadership of the Rev Mike Gargrave. The service of union will take place on Wednesday, June 16 at 7pm.
Clincarthill is the name of the historic hill both churches are on — which is why the name was chosen.”


The WW1 memorial consists of a stained glass window, a brass tablet, a book of remembrance and a photographic record of each soldier.

Historical Information: The majority of the casualties buried here resulted from the bombing of a troop train by the Germans on 17th June 1940. In addition, 26 casualties, including 3 married couples, were added in October 1945, when Short Stirling transport aircraft LJ668 from 299 Sqdn. crashed near Rennes on route from Cairo to the UK.

One of the couples was Edward and Agnes Maltby.

For more details of the crash see : http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/showthread.php?5945-WAAF-amp-RAF-Casualties-query

Please note that all War Memorials previously belonging to Battlefield East Parish Church, Langside Hill Parish Church and Mount Florida Parish Church are no longer on display. In 2013 a new War Memorial was inaugurated combining the names of the fallen from the former churches of Battlefield East, Langside Hill & Mount Florida. This new memorial is displayed in the Prayer Room within the sanctuary. The redundant war memorials have been kept and the intention is to display them in a Memorabilia area at some future date.
