All Saints Church is in Ashgrove Terrace, Lockerbie. It is a Category B listed building and an active Scottish Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway.

The church was built in 1903 and designed by Douglas and Minshull, a firm of architects from Chester. All Saints Church is built in ashlar stone with a red tile roof. Its plan consists of a low nave with aisles, a higher chancel with a canted end, a south porch and a tower at the west end. The tower has a broach spire with Westmorland slates. The stained glass includes a memorial window by Morris & Co.

The photograph of the exterior of the church is from a gallery on the church's web-site at https://lockerbieanglican.org/ and has been used with permission.
The photographs of the war memorial plaque and the interior view showing the postion of the plaque over the vestry door have been provided by Kath Leadbeater, the church's web-site manager.

A big thank you Kath.
