New Kilpatrick Parish Church, 28 Kirk Place, Bearsden, Glasgow G61 3RT

OS Grid Ref: NS 543722



The Parish of New Kilpatrick was created as a result of an act of the Scottish Parliament of February 1649. The Act still exists in the national archives in Edinburgh. It divided the former parish of Kilpatrick (which stretched from near Dumbarton to what is now the west end of Glasgow) into Wester, or Old, Kilpatrick and Easter, or New, Kilpatrick. The original tiny church was built on the site of the present building and lasted for over 150 years. Nothing of it now remains, although a group of 17th century gravestones can be found in the south-east corner of the churchyard.

This beautiful Memorial is in need of refurbishment and the church is in the process of raising funds to do so. Early estimates put the costs of refurbishment at £20,000.

This memorial is going to receive funds from the Government scheme to renovate it.

Fund will help to repair important war memorial in Bearsden
Published on the16 November 2013 10:00

A decaying war memorial in New Kilpatrick Church, Bearsden, will be repaired thanks to a grant of £9,107.

The cash comes from the £1 million Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund which was launched to commemorate the centenary of World War I, to repair and conserve war memorials in Scotland.

The memorial in the West Porch of the church dates back to 1920 and is in a poor condition due to graffiti, previous unsuitable conservation work and weather erosion as it was originally located outside.

The sandstone has decayed, sections of caved stone have been lost and inscriptions are fading.

The grant will help to fund stabilisation works to the sandstone and re-pointing using a lime mortar, as well as remove graffiti and re-paint the memorial inscriptions.

John Young, chairman of Friends of New Kilpatrick which has raised over £10,000 to put towards the additional work that will be required, said: “We’re thrilled to get this grant as we’ve been wanting to restore this memorial for a considerable time.

“It is for the whole community of Bearsden and shows 350 names of soldiers who served, 48 of them were killed in action.

“It will be wonderful to be able to re-carve the names to clarify them and make them legible once more.”
