THIS ORGAN AND PULPIT WERE DEDICATED 12th MARCH 1948.

The following extract is from “A Celebration of Kenmure Church of Scotland” by Sheila Livingstone.
“The original War Memorial dedicated to those who fell in 1914 -1918 was the Fallen Heroes Tablet in the form of a shield designed by Mr Findlay, Sculptor, which was unveiled on Sunday 7th September 1919. On Armistice Sunday 1927 a refurbished version was unveiled. It had been enlarged and was mounted on an alabaster plaque which was decorated with roses, thistles and shamrocks surrounded by a copper wreath.”
Later in the book she writes:-
“Sadly it seems that the alabaster War Memorial was sold for the scrap value of £5.”

Many thanks to the Rev. James Gemmell for allowing me to photograph the memorial.

John
