|Location: St Andrews Blackadder Church, St. Andrews Street, North Berwick.
The church has undergone substantial renovation in recent years, so I think the memorial may have been moved from its original location. It can now be found on a stairwell to the right of the main entrance, together with a number of other memorials.
This photo is the best I could do in the circumstances. The batteries were running low on my camera so I had only time for a couple of shots, neither of which came out too well.
