UKNIWM Ref: 44378

This is one of six church memorials now to be found in Castle Douglas Parish Church at OS Map Ref: NX 765 622. There is no corresponding WW2 memorial.

There is a puzzle to be solved concerning this memorial and Trinity United Free (UKNIWM 44380). Trinity United Free is a WW1 memorial with no corresponding WW2 whereas St Ringans is WW2 with no corresponding WW1. Both boards are very similar and now both reside in Castle Douglas Parish Church I wonder if Trinity United Free became St Ringans between the wars? Both memorials refer to a communion table it is not clear if these refer to the same or different tables or, in fact, if that is the table now in Castle Douglas Church anyway, I photographed the only communion table visible.
