I spoke to a member of this Church and she mentioned that the window, Roll of Honour and Memorial Book are from the old Parish and the present Parish Church. Her brother is mentioned on the Second World War Plaque [John Davidson Haigh, R.A.F.V.R].

The Scotsman, 26 October 1920:

South Queensferry.—In the Parish Church a special service was held in connection with the unveiling of a memorial to sailors and soldiers belonging to the congregation who fell in the war. By subscription from the congregation a mural tablet of chaste design and bearing the names of thirty officers and men who made the supreme sacrifice in the war has been inserted in the north wall. An address was delivered by the Rev. W. B. Wilson, M.A., minister of the parish, and the unveiling was performed by the Provost Morison. A lament was played by a piper, and the "Last Post" sounded.

It appears that, based on 'thirty officers and men', this mural tablet (now lost?) commemorated the men in the second Great War list in the Memorial Book.

The tablet (thought to be lost) has now turned up in the Vennel Cemetery, in very poor condition- see https://www.warmemorialsonline.org.uk/memorial/255156

This Press Report also details further possible memorials in this Church- the sort which are hard to find unless you know they are there to be found.

Falkirk Herald - Wednesday 15 September 1948 -WAR MEMORIALS - The Rev. Ian F. McCulloch reported that the Property Committee had considered plans for a war memorial window for South Queensferry Church. The window was to consist of two panels, one showing the figure of Moses typifying deliverance, and below, St. Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors. The other panel would contain a figure of St. Paul, typifying the spirit of hope, with beneath the figure of St. Margaret, the patron Saint of South Queensferry. whose interests in the promotion of the gospel and the upbringing of children in the Christian faith was well known. The Presbytery approved of the plans. The second memorial, said Mr M'Culloch, came from Denny Broompark. A lady in the congregation was making a gift of a baptismal font in memory of her daughter who died in 1917, a lectern in memory of her husband who died in the first World War, and a praise board in memory of her son who died in the second World War. All were in oak. The congregation also intended to place a war memorial in the Church. This would take the form of a central panel bearing the names of the fallen with panels on either side. The Presbytery approved.
