The memorial listed on UKNIWM for 'Corsock and Kirkpatrick Durham' (UKNIWM Ref 5880) is incorrect. The memorial in question is for Corsock only - the one for Kirkpatrick Durham needs to be added and these are the photos to prove it.

I seem to be making a habit of posting non-existant memorials at the moment, must get around to posting the listed ones Laughing

I like the inscription on this memorial, it shows a bit of thought has gone into it.
Although not in perfect condition the memorial does look well looked after so I think Kirpatrick Durham is honouring its pledge.

As Spoons has pointed out there is some confusion about Corsock and Kirkpatrick Durham which are only a few miles apart.
The village of Corsock was in Parton Parish and the boundry between Parton and Kirkpatrick-Durham Parishes (Urr Water) is just outside Corsock.
In 1855 when statutory registration was introduced a new registration district was created called Corsock Bridge to cover areas of mainly Parton but also of Kirkpatrick-Durham and even Balmaclellan.
(It roughly follows the line of todays A712 beween Crocketford and Balmaclellan)
Each entry on the Corsock Bridge registers show not only place of birth/death/etc but also which Parish.
The church in Corsock is now linked to the Kirkpatrick-Durham church but CWGC refers to it by the original name Corsock U.F. Churchyard, Parton.
