This stained glass window is obviously within a church, but as it's is the only memorial in the village of Fintry, presumably it can be classed as Fintry's Civic Memorial.

Stirling Observer, 23rd September 1916, ‘Fintry Australian with the Colours – Sergeant John Drummond’
Sergeant John Drummond belongs to Fintry, Stirlingshire, but left this country for Australia on 18th May 1911, joining the Army there in 1915. On June 6th of this year he arrived in England and is at present at Larkhilll Camp, Salisbury. Previous to his immigration to Australia he was fireman for some time at Alloa Railway Station. His father (deceased) was for many years roadman between Kippen and Fintry, the family living at Larnock old toll-house.

Stirling Observer, 12th May 1917, ‘Rumours of War’
Our Boys have been in the thick of it recently. Lieutenant Drummond of the Australians has been at home recuperating after a nasty wrist wound.

Stirling Observer, 24th November 1917, ‘Local Australian Killed in Action – Lieutenant John Drummond’
Official information has been received by Mrs. Drummond, Fintry, that her son, Lieutenant John Drummond of the Australian Expeditionary Forces, has been killed in action in France on the 10th October, during one of the many attacks at Ypres. This, among other things, is what his superior officer says of him: “You son was an excellent officer in every respect and as a man his character was somewhat to be envied. For his exceptionally good work when he first came to France he was promoted to commissioned rank, and had he been spared would have risen to much higher spheres. He was popular with all, and is very much missed, but not forgotten, by his battalion. We all regret his departure very, very much.” Lieutenant Drummond emigrated to the Antipodes five years ago, and was in the service of the Western Australian Railway. Along with several other chums – some of whom have since made the supreme sacrifice – he enlisted in December, 1915. Before going to Australia he was for a few years in the employment of the North British Railway Company.

Stirling Observer, 1st December 1917, ‘Fintry – The Boys’
Last week was indeed a serious one for our boys on the fighting fronts, and our casualty list has been increasing by leaps and bounds. The intimation of Lieutenant Drummond’s death had not reached the public before news was received that three of the lads who have served since the earliest mobilisation – Lance Corporals Dougall, Fleming and Leitch had been noted as casualties. John Dougall, third son of Mr. Dougall of Overglinns, has been posted as missing, while Allan Fleming and James Leitch are returned as wounded. In common with the other bereaved and anxious parents and friends, the deep sympathy of the public is extended to the parents of these gallant lads.

Duncan is commemorated on a Family Stone in Fintry Kirkyard, see: http://scottishwargraves.phpbbweb.com/viewtopic.php?t=72&highlight=fintry&mforum=scottishwargraves

Stirling Observer, 26th September 1914, ‘Kippen’s Roll of Honour’
A list of names of those who have left Kippen village to fight for their King and country has been printed on vellum and hung up in a glass case at the door of Kippen Parish Church. The list comprises 28 names in all. About two-thirds are in the Argyll and Sutherland Highanders, four an in the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry, four in the Seaforths, one in the Scots Greys and one in the Highland Light Infantry. The population of Kippen is about 300. The following is on the list: Trooper James Edmond, Balafark, Fife & Forfar Yeomanry.

Stirling Observer, 10th October 1914
The Balfron correspondent claims Sergeant Trooper Edmond, Balafork. Accoring to the electoral roll, Balafork is in Kippen parish, so, ‘of course’, we cannot forego our claim. If part of Balafork is in Balfron Parish, then we might agree to divide the gallant Sergeant and trust this will be the only mutilation he will undergo.

Stirling Observer, 5th December 1914, ‘Fintry Sons of Temperance Roll of Honour’
Brother James Edmond, Sergeant, Fife and Forfar Yeomanry.

Stirling Observer, 1st July 1916
Sergeant James Edmond, 1st Fife and Forfar Yeomanry, served six years as a Volunteer before the outbreak of the war. He went with the regiment to the several training centres in Fifeshire and along the East Coast of England. Thereafter he proceeded to the Dardanelles where a sprained foot and a touch of frostbite necessitated his withdrawal for a time to Malta. He is presently at Alexandria on Military Service. He is reported as being cool and intrepid under the hottest fire, a good example to his men. He is the eldest son of Mr. John Edmond of Balafork. He did well as an amateur in the local performances, scoring brilliant hits therein, as well as among the Turks. No matter where ‘Jimmy’ goes he is always likeable – can read a man’s pretensions readily and by thinking the best he can of everyone wins their respect and keeps his own.

Stirling Observer, 12th May 1917, ‘Rumours of War’
Lieutenant Edmond, son of Mr. Edmond, Balafark, has been hot, but details are lacking.

Lewis Leonard Grant

CWGC: (Listed as Louis Leonard Grant)
Rank: Sergeant
Regiment: Australian Infantry. 14th Battalion
No: 449
Date of Death: 30th August 1915
Age: 24
Commemorated: Lone Pine Memorial
Additional Information: Son of Lewis and Jessie Grant, Police Station, Fintry. Native of Dulnain Bridge, Grantoen-on-Spey

SNWM: Not Listed.

Stirling Observer, 2nd October 1915, ‘Died for the Cause’
The grim reality of war has been borne in upon us by the news of the death of Corporal Lewis Grant, D Company, 14th Battalion, 4th A.I.F., Infantry Brigade. About five years ago Corporal Grant left this country to try his hand in Australia. He was proving a promising Colonist when the call to arms came to him and at once he enlisted to assist the Motherland. He was sent with his regiment to the Dardanelles and only recently he wrote saying he had been wounded in the shoulder, but that was healing all right. Word, however, was received from a comrade on Tuesday last to say that he had peacefully passed away on the voyage to Malta and was buried at sea. While he resided in Fintry, deceased made many friends, being prominent both as a football player and member of the Rifle Club. Much sympathy is felt in the district for his sorrowing parents. This is h first direct casualty in our district and it has brought home to us more and more the serious nature of the task that dies before the nation.

Stirling Observer, 9th October 1915, ‘Fintry Australian Dies of Wounds’
Private Lewis Grant, son of Constable Lewis Grant, Fintry, Stirlingshire, died at sea on September 2nd after being wounded at the Dardanelles. Private Grant, who was about 24 years of age, emigrated to Australia about five years ago and he joined the Army on the outbreak of war, being sent to Egypt and later to the Dardanelles. When resident in Fintry the deceased was a prominent personality in football and other sports.

And his brother:

Donald Robert Grant

CWGC:
Rank: Private
Regiment: Seaforth Highlanders, 1st Battalion
No. S/12340
Date of Death: 12th July 1916
Age: 20
Buried: Amara War Cemetery
Additional Information: Son of Lewis Grant, Dulnain Bridge, Grantown-on-Spey, Inverness-shire

SNWM:
Rank: Private
Regiment: Seaforth Highlanders, 1st Battalion
No. S/12340
Date of Death: 12th July 1916
Theatre of Death: Persian Gulf
Cause of Death: Died


Stirling Observer, 5th August 1916, ‘Deaths on Service’
GRANT – Died on 12th July, at Persian Gulf, Private Donald Robert Grant, Seaforth Highlanders, aged 20, beloved youngest and only surviving son of Lewis and Jessie Grant, Police Station, Fintry, Stirlingshire, and brother of the late Sergeant Lewis Grant, died of wounds received at the Dardanelles, 12th July 1916; deeply regretted.

Stirling Observer, 21st October 1916, ‘In Memoriam’
Our village has had its times of anxiety during the war, but this summer has laid heavy toll upon us. It seems hard that the bright-faced lads we have seen travelling onward from childhood to manhood should be taken and we – old and useless for war – be left. Donald Grant, second son of Lewis Grant, Fintry, died of sunstroke in the Persian Gulf on 12th July 1916. Such is the statement. How like it is in its tragic brevity to many others! Though over six years ago, it seems but yesterday since the cheery boy’s face framed in his dark curly locks cam before us requesting us to assume the responsibility of inaugurating a local troop of Boy Scouts. Then we remembered his eagerness and anxiety to help forward the movement – our outings together – our first camp on the slopes of the Lennox Hills, 1000 feet above sea level. Then as he grew older there comes to our mind how he used to creep down beside us in the gloaming while we waited for the big fish, and his cry of excitement when the splashing grilse was brought to the bank rings again in our ears in these autumn evenings as we ply our rod down by the willows. Then came the days of the choir and the dances, while often his cycle carried him hither and thither round the district, a welcome for him everywhere, this lad of the bright laugh and gladsome eye. War’s alarms stirred him and when his brother Lewis Grant gave his life so nobly for his King and Motherland, the lad felt he must do something. Again and again he tried to get a place in the Army and finally he was enlisted in the Seaforths, that famous regiment of the Grants – for Donald Grant was of the Grantown district, his parents being both natives of the place.
His short furlough home seems but a dream and there was no doubt but that the fighting spirit of a hundred generations shone from his eyes as he stood before us a typical Highlander – than which, what’s finer? The suspense of the long voyage – hopes, fears, anxieties, and now all is over. He sleeps. Our sympathy goes out to his twice bereaved parents.
Donald Grant sleeps far from our hamlet. No stone marks his resting place. No monument needs to be rised to his memory, for the cry of the whaup, the croon of the cushat, and the hoot of the owl recall to memory all brave Highlanders – and he was one of them.

Both brothers are also commemorated on Balfron Civic Memorial.

Stirling Observer, 21st October 1916
Mrs. Gow has suffered a severe loss in the death of her son James. Though exempted from service, he felt it was his duty to be there and now for him the eternal rest, the soldier’s crown. We did not know him, for he resided for many years at Ardlamont, where he was gamekeeper, but by repute he was a good son, a good servant, and a good soldier. He was faithful ‘Even unto death.’

Stirling Observer, 20th October 1917, ‘Local Soldier’s Death’
It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Private David Hutton of the Australians, youngest son of the late Andrew Hutton, blacksmith, and Mrs. Hutton, Fintry. The sad news was conveyed to his mother in a nice letter from his lieutenant. The cause of death had been by the bursting of a shell, and David lies beside his chum, Bell, in a soldier’s grave on the blood soaked plains of Flanders. When a boy, David was a general favourtite and his restless laughing countenance was always in evidence whenever there was anything going on. A few years ago he went to Australia, and of course he joined up when the necessity for helping the motherland struck the Colony. Well, for him the suffering and strife are over, and he sleeps amongst the brave in the land where our heroes have made history. Much sympathy is expressed for his bereaved mother and sisters.
