This Second World War memorial came from Clifton Parish Church, which was the congregation which formed from the mergers of Coats, Trinity and Cliftonhill churches.

Thanks to Morag White for these photos.

Information in this thread confirms this memorial actually came from Coats Parish Church.

I will amend the title again.
