This memorial has only recently been rediscovered. I'd previously researched the Church magazine for the Great War period and had a number of names. What is interesting is that the memorial lists "Church Members" and "Associates", however these only account for about half of the casualties mentioned in the magazine. Most of this latter group had been involved in the Sunday School or other youth groups many years previously. I've listed all three groups.

What a great rediscovery. This is a Banks & Co Ltd roll. They were Edinburgh printers who produced these ornate scrolls after the war.
