North Kelvinside United Free Church.

A secession church parish. It began as a United Presbyterian mission in 1892, and was formed into a congregation in 1894. It passed to the United Free Church in 1900 and to the Church of Scotland in 1929.
The memorials are now housed in the Vestry of Ruchill Parish Church, Shakespeare Street, Maryhill, Glasgow.
