Connel War Memorial
Location: St Oran's Church, Connel
OS Ref: NM 914 342

The war memorials for Connel are in the local parish church. It is a small dark church and the memorials are brass so I've struggled to get any decent images.

I have a transcription which I will post. The first name on the Great War memorial is Thomas Nelson of the Edinburgh publishing family.
