In the autumn of 1933, thanks to the generous giving of Congregational Churches throughout Scotland, and considerable foresight on the part of the Church Extension Committee of the day, the Church in Knightswood was erected and consecrated to the worship and glory of God.
Two years earlier, in 1931, it had been intimated at the Annual Assembly that an excellent site had been secured in Knightswood, an important suburb in the west of Glasgow. By October 1933 the building had been completed.
There are two WW2 memorials; both are located in the Memorial Hall which was built in 1950 in memory of those who were killed in WW2.
The memorial for Dundas Street Congregational Church can be found on the project here.
The WW2 memorial for Knightswood Church, is inscribed as follows:
1939 – 19145
TO THE GLORY OF GOD
AND IN MEMORY OF
(Mrs) Violet McLean
(Mrs) Elizabeth M. Sandys
(Mrs) Grace Wilson
William K. Burns
John B. Corbett
George R. Gibb
Robert O. Syme
THEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN
Many thanks to the Rev. Alan Gibbon for allowing me access to his church, also for his enthusiasm and good wishes towards the Scottish War Memorial Project.
