Thanks are due to Bob Stewart, Chairman, and Gerry Farrell, Vice Chairman of Lanarkshire Family History Society for the photographs and their kind permission to post them on the website.

The West Parish Church was closed in 2012 and merged with Avendale Parish Church. This Memorial was reinstated within the Hall of Fellowship of Avendale Old Parish Church.
