A brass plaque commemorating those of the congregation who fell in the Great War was erected within the church.
Some years ago the Friends of Dundee City Archives recorded the names on the memorial whilst in situ.
The church is now the 'Cairn Centre' which took over and redeveloped the property circa 2007.
I visited today but the plaque is no longer there and they have no knowledge of it.
I spoke with a member of the Baptist Church in nearby Ward Road but they did not take custody of the memorial.

Hi

I'm a Baptist Minister seeking to complete a WW1 Scottish Baptist ROH. I put an article in our magazine a number of years ago asking people to send me photos of memorials in Baptist Churches in Scotland. I only had a few responses, but a man called Keith Duncan from Dundee sent me photos related to the Baptist Churches in Central, Lochee and Rattray Street. I've posted them in the relevant section.
Regards
LIT
