The Dublin Street Church was demolished in the early 1990s. Sadly the memorial and Church records went missing around that time. After a 10 year search one of the previous ministers came across a photocopy of a photo of the memorial. I list the casualties I believe were associated with the Church.

One thing to note is that I also had a partial casualty list associated with this Church dated January 1917. This list had numerous spelling mistakes and a few incorrect ranks. It lists a Cpt D Campbell. However I haven't come across a casualty of that name and rank associated with this Church. There was however a casualty, Corporal D Campbell, who resided close to Dublin Street. I believe this latter man is the correct one and may list him later.

Well done. There are a couple of church memorials missing in Perth. Finding a picture of some description would be great for me.

Re David Campbell, this might be Sergt David Campbell, 1265 5th Royal Scots. Date of Death28/06/1915. He lived at 125 Broughton Road -not too far from the then Canonmills Mission Hall of Dublin Street Baptist Church.
His death was reported in the Edinburgh Evening News on 11/03/1916 and a photograph of him was in the edition of 22/03/1916. He wroked for the GPO - probably on the Edinburgh Post Office Memorial. He is also commemorated on his parents' gravestome in Rosebank Cemetery.

Hi Jessie

He was the man I was thinking of. As you say his address was very close to the mission hall. I think the rank mentioned in the roll of honour published in the January 1917 edition of Scottish Baptist Magazine is wrong, as it was for many others on the memorial.
