I saw an article from 2010 which reported on planning permission to convert Kinnell Church into a house and that the war memorial was to be moved. Does anyone know if this has been carried out ?

I wonder when the image from this web page was taken?

http://www.scottishchurches.org.uk/sites/site/id/1311/image/6110/name/Kinnell+Parish+Church+Kinnell+Tayside

This one seems to have been uploaded in Feb 2011 and shows the memorial next to the church
