John

These are great photos of church memorials. Brass plaques in dark churches aren't the easiest to photograph.

Do you know if these plaques are for Eastbank Parish Church or Carntyne Old Church?

Kind regards

Adam

Adam,

The memorials belong to the formerly named Eastbank Parish Church.
Ronnie Gray the minister is trying to establish if Carntyne Old Church had any memorials and if so, what happened to them.

John.
