Holy Rood Scottish Episcopal Church , Maule Street, Carnoustie has a war memorial to the Casualties of the Congregation within the church itself . It lists the names of the casualties .

I a number of years ago got access via the then minister but he has moved and I hear there is now a new female minister in situ . I had the "old" film camera then but I hope to go and get in using the diggy camera ..

Scottish National War Memorial Edinburgh Castle :

BUTCHART , john , born bridge of don, aberdeenshire , 1163, pte , kia F & F , 26th April 1916 , 1st Battalion.

** Please note the SNWM shows just now this entry as BUTCHER John etc but this is being corrected on the roll wihen it is next updated , the correction has been approved by the Trustees of the SNWM during Sept 2023 .

Even the Soldiers died in the Great War Black Watch lists this casualty as BUTCHER and also the Book "history of the BW in the great war edited by Major General Wauchope have the 1st Bn casualties record this soldier as being BUTCHER .

The birth certificate record that birth of John BUTCHART 21st June 1890 at coastguard station Bridge of Don .
