PostPosted: Wed Jan 24, 2007 3:11 pm    Post subject: Ayrshire memorials discussion Reply with quote

This thread is now solely for discussion of potential memorials not covered by the Project in the Ayrshire area.

I realise that there may be some confusion as to which of the three Ayrshire unitary authorities these memorials fall into so I have merged the three Ayrshires, North, East and West in this list. As with other lists if there are any errors or omissions please let me know.

I have started to attach links in this list but it takes time to update it so a memorial may be on the forum and not linked here. If in doubt use the search facility in the forum to look to see if a memorial has been posted.

Thanks for the offer. Your local knowledge would be appreciated. It would be great if you could post some of your information on New Cummnock on this forum. I see Spoons has already added your excellent website to our links section.

Hello Adam,
Some more info for you.

Lugar Memorial, grounds of Lugar Church, auth - Old Cumnock Old Church Kirk Session, NS 591214.

I doubt if there's a memorial in Logan since it's basically a 1950s housing estate built by Ayr County Council to replace the miners' rows.

Muirkirk memorial is at NS 696273, as is the Glenbuck one. They are two separate memorials but in the same place. The Glenbuck one was brought down to Muirkirk for safekeeping as Glenbuck is now an opencast site.

Hope this helps,
Richard

Hello Adam,
Auchinleck War memorial sits between Auchinleck Parish Church and the Boswell Mausoleum on the B7036 leading west from the village. It's at NS 552216 and is looked after by East Ayrshire.

The Cumnock one is in the cemetery on Glaisnock Road, leading south from the town and is opposite the Fire Station at NS 572193. Once again it's an East Ayrshire one.

PostPosted: Tue Feb 06, 2007 3:44 pm    Post subject: Baird Institute, Cumnock Reply with quote

Hello Adam,
It's not a war memorial in itself but it does contain a couple of interesting research volumes.
The first is entitled the Public War Memorials of Ayrshire, by Irene J R Hopkins and is an alphabetic list of all the names on all the Public Ayrshire War Memorials. The family historian at the Baird doesn't know much about it apart from the fact that there's only one in East Ayrshire and it's in the Baird.

The second is a box file of colour photographs of the Ayrshire war memorials with hand written descriptions of their locations and lists of names. There is no author or researcher's name ascribed to it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it might be the aforementioned Irene Hopkins' working documents. If we're getting stuck for some of the remoter Ayrshire memorials, I suppose that a bit of friendly persuasion might work wonders at the Baird.

Hello Adam,
If Irene Hopkins took the photos then it was after 1994. In the description of the Lugar Memorial, her photo shows the memorial in the church garden. She also mentions that it was moved here in 1994 from the roadside (A 70) as it was becoming badly eroded. One of our questions answered!

Hello Adam
I've just noticed that Ochiltree War Memorial is missing from the list. It sits in a small garden on the southern edge of the village on the A76. The Grid Ref. is NS 507212 and is tended by East Ayrshire Council.

I'll post some photos.
