This man is remembered by plaques in neighbouring parishes.

In both cases, he is noted as nephew of an uncle who pre-deceased him.
(Whitchester is the local 'big house').

He also appears on:
* Longformacus civic memorial + roll
* Cranshaws Church roll

I include pictures & exteriors.

Brief update.

Longformacus Parish Church closed on 26th May 2013.

I'm told it has now been sold to a member of the congregation: that's what Langton & Lammermuir Kirk previously did with their buildings at Polwarth and Abbey St Bathans.

There are apparently no plans to remove any plaques/tablets.

As noted on their threads, the Rolls of Honours are now in the village hall.
