MEMORIAL TABLETS IN HOUNDWOOD CHURCH - In Houndwood Parish Church on Sunday the Rev J Edgar Davidson BD, minister of the parish, dedicated mural tablets in memory of Mr Charles Lile Stirling-Cookson, late of Houndwood and Reston, and of Captain Samuel Baillie Stirling-Cookson, his son, who was killed in action in France early in the war.


Houndwood Parish Church closed around 2003 and is being converted into a crematorium, to open very shortly.

A few plaques are currently being moved from the church to the belltower room, which will become the crematorium's Book of Remembrance area.

Also on Houndwood civic memorial.

I attended the church service to dedicate the new facility this evening - 100 or so people present - and the plaque is now up in the Remembrance Room.
