St David's RC Church Memorial
Location: West Wall, Church car park, Eskbank Road
OS Ref: NT 328 669

A very religious theme for this church memorial. Although the Calvary is in good condition the inscriptions on the stones are unreadable and only a handful of names can be made out.





I have not bothered to post the stones with the names because of this. Here is an example.



I will try and find out the list of names. Some of them will be on the civic memorial just a few hundred metres along the road.

St Davidís

Neither is the second man. He was from Gorebridge and is on that war memorial so it shows the catchment area for this large church.
