The subject of the number of memorials recorded by the forum came up in parliament recently. For those interested here is a list of what I think we've recorded. The numbers aren't exact because I haven't counted every entry but I think this is accurate enough and comes in at roughly 4,600

I think it is quite obvious that we have a long way to go in recording church and school memorials.

Very much so. Some areas have hardly been touched by anyone with a camera.

Perhaps we could mount a mass polite email query campaign to schools, colleges and churches in one area at a time and see what responses we get back?

Derek.

Here are the latest estimated totals. There are some threads with more than one memorial so we canít say for sure exactly how many are recorded here, but this is as good an estimate as we are going to get -unless someone wants to go through each thread and count them!

1468 Civic Memorials
1199 Church Memorials
888 Individual Memorials
715 Other Memorials
353 Regimental & Unit Memorials
198 School Memorials
188 Rolls of Honour
133 Outside Scotland
53 Lost? Memorials
11 Unknown Memorials

5206 Total

The gaps are still in the same place as before. We should revisit Derek's idea because we don't seem to be making any headway in these areas.

Based on areas like Dumfries and Galloway, Dundee and Angus, Perth and Kinross, and Renfrewshire, there may be as many church memorials as civic memorials in other areas across Scotland too.

If that is the case then we can expect to record at least another 600 church memorials. (The difference between civic memorials and church memorials already recorded on the forum, in areas where there are fewer church memorials than civic memorials, is 645)

The latest figures:

Civic Memorials - 1491 [+ 20 since May]
Church Memorials - 1300 [+ 76]
Individual Memorials - 948 [+ 32]
Other Memorials - 770 [+ 41]
Regimental & Unit Memorials - 364 [+ 10]
Rolls of Honour - 217 [+ 38]
School Memorials - 211 [+ 10]
Outside Scotland - 150 [+ 16]
Missing / Lost Memorials - 55 [- 6 added to relevant sections above instead]

Total = 5506 [+ 237]

A lot of this latest increase is down to the sterling work John Houston is doing going through the Glasgow churches and schools and recording their memorials.

Thanks

Adam

Adam, can I find a list for what has already been researched in Angus? I'm pretty new to the forum, but I am based in the Brechin/Edzell area and might be able to help out a little for this county.

That index may need to be updated though - new additions or corrections may be missing from it.

What is needing done in Lanarkshire? I have done quite a few in that area and also Edinburgh but an updated list would be great.

The index for Lanarkshire needs to be updated to include all the memorials added since it was last updated.
