Council plans afoot to relocate replica memorial plaques for town centre redevelopment.
At least this article explains why there are two sets of name panels for the town.

http://www.falkirkherald.co.uk/news/local-news/denny-war-memorial-debate-continues-1-3025927

"Residents in Denny and Dunipace are being encouraged to make their voices heard over the future location of the burgh’s war memorial.

Falkirk Council intends to temporaily relocate the plaques listing the names of fallen soldiers to the Broompark Centre in Denny while Church Walk is demolished.

But a consultation exercise is due to begin to gather opinions of where in the town centre a memorial should be sited on a permanent basis.

One option, which was discussed at a recent meeting of the town’s heritage society, and posted on the community council’s Facebook page, is to move the burgh’s original memorial from Denny Cemetery in Herbertshire, near Denny High School, to a more central location.

The monument, Victory or Peace, was unveiled by the Duke of Montrose on Saturday, May 6, 1922, and is the work of acclaimed memorial sculptor George Henry Paulin.

But the burgh’s annual Remembrance Day service was switched to Church Walk in Denny town centre after concerns that the cemetery was too far for elderly veterans to walk.

The plaques listing the burgh’s fallen, which are mounted on the granite base of the monument, were copied and installed on Stirling Street. It is these copies that will be temporarily relocated to the Broompark Centre.

Falkirk Council director of development services Rhona Geisler said: “A newsletter will be issued shortly to Denny residents to provide an update on the redevelopment of the town centre. This also includes information on the temporary relocation of the war memorial plaques and all views are welcome.”

The bronze figure in Denny Cemetery, a tribute to the 154 men from Denny and Dunipace who were killed during the First World War, cost £1200 and is sited on land gifted by Charles William Forbes of Callendar.

Inspired by the motif on the seal of the former burgh of Denny and Dunipace, it is considered a fine example of Paulin’s work.

The Clackmannannshire-born artist is acclaimed as one of the finest memorial sculptors who were working in the inter-war period. His work was commissioned across the world.

His artistic fame during the 1920s was such that he was commissioned to design the gravestone of the famous Scots-American industrialist and philantorpist Andrew Carnegie

Thanks Anne. From the article above it looks like this is only a temporary solution during work on the town centre, but it looks like they've done a pretty good job for a short term solution.

Thanks

Adam

It looks really good - obviously quite a lot of work has gone into it.

However, as Denny town centre has been undergoing a 'proposed redevelopment' for years, the whole place looks more like a war-zone than anything else (in my personal opinion), so there's no knowing what will happen.

When i started doing my family tree i found i had family who had lived in Denny for a couple of generations in the mid 1800's, so i went online to see what it looked like...... Shocked They really did a good job of demolishing everyhting then pouring concrete in the 60's.

As part of my research into Wigtown (Dumfries & Galloway) men who fought in WW1 I came across John McGlade as the CWGC database states that his wife lived in Wigtown. It looks like she moved here after her husband died but the de Ruvigny entry for him is well worth reproducing below:

Mike,

If you send me a PM with your personal e-mail address, I'll send you all the bits and pieces I have for John McGlade.
