Not listed on UKNIWM

Location in Dundonald Parish Church at OS Map Ref NS 366 343

They have never added the WW2 names to the civic memorial in Dundonald which means these men are not listed on any other memorial. I have therefore listed it as a civic memorial which I hope will be temporary. I spoke to the session clerk and another and they told me there is dissatisfaction that the WW2 names have not been added to the WW1 memorial. I was left with the impression that they would maybe petition the local council.

I visited the Dundonald WW1 memorial last month (05/16) and noticed the WW2 names that that are only recored in the church have still not been added to the main memorial.
