I have a detailed History of the Mc Lachlan family of Architects/builders and monumental sculptors.The above Robert Boyd Mc Lachlan and three of his sons,William,Hugh and Andrew were also sculptors.The business only ceased in 1990.
War memorials known-Beith,Dunlop-RBMc L,Westview.
I hold notes of costs etc.Beith was indeed built on the Bigholm Hill,but was blown down in a storm. Chipping can still be seen round the plinth. It was re-erected and after another storm erected on the site it is on today in Beith town.
Hugh,Ayr.-mems.- Kirkoswald,Minishant and Patna.
William, Johnstone.No known war mems.to date.
A marble baptismal font in Trinity Church, Beith in memory of Robert B Mc Lachlan gifted by the family.
Robert B.Mc Lachlan is my great grandfather.
Anyone wishes details or copy of the family history please contact me.
