The smaller of the 2 WW1 plaques is dedicated to the members of Berryhill Mission Station, which was attached to Wishaw Old Parish Church. The Mission was across Glasgow Road from the King George V Park and was laterly used as a canteen fro Morton Machine Company.
When the building closed this and other memorials were transferred to Wishaw Old Parish Church.
