Busby Civic War Memorial, Main Street, Busby, East Renfrewshire. G76 8DX.

OS Grid Ref: NS 579565




The village of Busby now has a Civic War Memorial which is mounted on the exterior wall of the Duff Memorial Halls. The dedication service took place on Thursday 26th January 2012 and the service was conducted by the Rev. Gerry Eve, Minister of Busby Parish Church. Also in attendance were Councillor Mary Montague, Convener for Community Services, East Renfrewshire and the ladies of The Friends of Duff Memorial Halls.
The Friends of Duff Memorial Halls were the inspiration for the project and were involved in raising the finance and designing the plaque.
Inside the Halls there are two Books of Condolence, one for those who served in WW1 and one for WW2.





At this moment the books detail all those who served in both wars, it does not indicate those who fell.

Many thanks to Lilias McKay for the invitation to attend the ceremony.

John
