CALDERBANK WAR MEMORIAL. On Thursday night, in the Miners’ Welfare Institute, Calderbank, a bronze tablet was unveiled in memory of the fallen from Calderbank district in the Great War. The Institute was crowded to the door, and many were unable to gain

Ken,
Just found out that there is a new memorial in Calderbank.

Taken from the Coatbridge and Airdrie Advertiser of November 20, 2014

"Provost Jim Robertson led the first-ever service at the new Calderbank War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday. The memorial includes recognition of those who also lost their lives in World War II."

We now need a photograph to add here.
