A large proportion of memorials are to be found inside churches and a significant proportion of these (in Dumfries and Galloway at least) are not listed on UKNIWM. Therefore it makes sense to list all churches and 'check them off' as the memorials are 'collected' or proven not to exist. If I know a closed church has no memorials, I have not bothered to list it.

This is my first attempt at listing the churches of Dumfries and Galloway. If anyone has any additions or suggestions, please let me know. I will keep this updated as I go along but others are welcome to join the hunt of course. Just let me know what has been checked and I will update.

Collected = memorials identified and photos
Part Collected = some photographed but at least one still to collect
None = confirmed that there are no memorials inside the church
needed = yet to be checked

I have decided that we also need a list of Village and Town Halls. I guess it will take a long time to check them all if I ever do, but a good 50% of them turn out to have unlisted memorials so it is worth the effort. Most of these are used for elections so I am thinking of contacting the Electoral Registration part of the council to see if they can let me have a list of halls and key-holders. And I will keep this list updated, again, just so anyone else knows what buildings have been checked.

Well done on collecting a list of churches, it's no easy task. I complied a couple for Glasgow and Lanarkshire and that was enough for me.

It's worth doing though to then start ticking them off.

If your on a roll you might want to consider sports clubs as well. There may me meorials such as sheilds or cups still being played for each year.
