The Wilson Church U.F. War Memorial is in display in St. Matthew's Church, Perth. From the unveiling article it appears there was a Roll of Service placed in the Church Hall. I have no idea where the Hall is or still exists. Further enquiry needed;

THE PERTHSHIRE CONSTITUTIONAL & JOURNAL : 01.12.1919
PERTH CHURCH'S WAR MEMORIAL UNVEILED


In memory of the members of the congregation who made the supreme sacrifice during the war, a Roll of Honour was yesterday unveiled in the Wilson U.F. Church at Perth.

The memorial is in the form of a handsome tablet of marble and is placed in the vestibule of the church. It bears an inscription and 22 names:- William R. Anderson, David Ballantine, William Bell, Arch. B. Cunningham, James Donaldson, Thomas Forbes, William Henderson, William Malcolm, William Matthew, Alan Menzies, Mabel L. Milne, John B. M'Kay, Alex. M'Laren, David Reid, William Reid, John B. Scrimgeour, David Small, Robert Small, William Small, Adam Smeaton, David Smith, Oswald M. Turner, and John Wilson.

The Roll of Honour of members of the congregation, who served in the Forces is on a brass tablet, and contains about 140 names. It has been placed in the Church Hall.

The memorial service was conducted by Rev. David Keir, locus tenens, and while he read the names of those who fell the congregation remained standing.

I have just checked the Wilson U.F. War Memorial photographed here. It is in brass, not marble as described in the article. A replacement made at a later date?
