St Mary of The Assumption RC Cathedral, Huntly Street (off Union Street)

UKNIWM reference number 5833. A teak crucifix on a granite plinth, inscribed in Latin and with the names of those who fell in both World Wars.



Outside the main door to the cathedral stands this striking memorial to the members of the congregation who died in the two world wars




The three faces commemorating the Great War fallen








And the Second World War names
