hello
not sure if I'm posting this in the right place so apologies in advance. I am working with a group of young people and volunteers and we have a framed picuture titled 'Cairnhill Roll of Honour' it has 96 names on it with photographs of each person. We beleive that Cairnhill is located near Portlethan (aberdeenshire) and Skateraw (newtonhill). I have a photo of the picutre (not sure how to attach) We are wondering is there a memorial for Cairnhill? or is the framed picture the memorial?
One other puzzle is that the first name is a Lieut. W. H. Grant Seaforths, but we can only find one WH Grant seaforths on the CWGC and its on a memorial in Granton on Spey. Any help would be very much appreciated, or if you can point us in the right direction. If you let me know how to attach the picture that might help folk, thank you

The Cairnhill Picture Memorial is in the Skateraw Hall in the Village of Newtonhill. I have a list of all the names on it.

Helen

If you could post the names here, that would be great.

And for everyone - to go back to James T's original question. Is this Newtonhill's civic war memorial?

No, it is a Roll of Honour for the district of Cairnhill, which would include the hamlet of Newtonhill. Newtonhill, which was little more than a railway halt near Skateraw in 1920, was in the parish of Cookney.

Cairnhill was a district and a school in a "quod sacra" Parish of Fetteresso, it may be that this Roll of Honour relates to one, or both. Cairnhill School was at Windyedge, near Newtonhill.
Within Fetteresso was the "quod sacra" parish of Cookney. Cairnhill lies within Cookney parish , hence the duplication of names already noted on the civic memorial there.
