This set of Memorials is now housed in St. Andrew's Parish Church, Church Street, Baillieston.

They came from Rhinsdale Church, which sat on Baillieston Main Street and was demolished in the 1960's and Crosshill/Baillieston Parish Church, Church Street, Baillieston. Crosshill Church has been disused for a number of years and is earmarked for development into flats (surprise, surprise). I haven't been able to ascertain which memorials came from which Church.

Back in 2008, the man detailed below caused a bit of a mystery as he appeared on umpteen memorials but we didn't know the connection.

"The following man is also commemorated on a Church Memorial which is now housed in St. Andrew's Parish Church in Baillieston.

http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=1659

It is unknown what the connection is with Baillieston.

Name: BAKER, JOHN KILGOUR
Initials: J K
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Captain
Regiment/Service: Cameronians (Scottish Rifles)
Unit Text: 1st Bn.
Age: 36
Date of Death: 09/10/1918
Additional information: Son of Margaret Robertson Baker, of Stirling, and the late Leonard Baker; husband of Audrey Carrington Baker, of 14, Stracey Rd., Norwich.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: II. E. 21.
Cemetery: MONTAY-NEUVILLY ROAD CEMETERY, MONTAY"

Just by chance, I came across a Death Notice in the Glasgow Herald for what appears to be for his first wife Jane Gillespie and as she died at 'Calder View', Baillieston, I think this is the link we needed. His parents are buried in Holy Rude Kirkyard in Stirling, but there is no mention of John on the family stone there.

DC Reads: Jane Baker nee Gillespie, age 28, wife of John Kilgour Baker, Art Master, died 7th September 1912 at Calder View, Muirhead Road, Baillieston

The newspaper notice (below) shows that John was Art Master at Coatbridge, so this explains why he appears on some Coatbridge Memorials.

He's listed on the memorial for Coatbridge Technical School.
