Stewarts & Lloyds were an iron and steel tube manufacturers, who had works in the Lanarkshire area.

More information on Stewarts & Lloyds can be found here

Here is a photograph of their Memorial Plaque, which at the time this photo was taken was in storage at Summerlee Heritage Museum in Coatbridge. The museum is currently closed and undergoing renovation, so I would assume this plaque is still in storage somewhere:

There were plans to have this Stewarts and Lloyds plaque put on permanent display as part of the redevelopment of Summerlee Heritage Parks main exhibition hall. From what I can gather though the plans have changed about a million times since I was involved in the project, so who knows if it will still be on display or not Sad

Can't confirm that at the moment, but Summerlee is due to open fairly soon and this may be on display. If it is, I'll let you know.

I visited Summerlee today and can reveal that this plaque is indeed on display, in the "War and Society" section. A fascinating section, it includes another memorial which I hope to upload shortly, together with displays featuring medals and other ephemera, including the Death Plaque of William Clamp VC.

There didn't appear to be any information relating to this memorial, but the memorial itself makes mention of the following places:

Clyde Tube Works
British Tube Works
Imperial Tube Works
Sun Foundry
Calder Coil Works
Climax Works
Vulcan Works

I believe these places of work were all in the Monklands area. See here:
