Lennoxtown - Strathkelvin, East Dunbartonshire

Lennoxtown (Campsie Parish) - Strathkelvin District
The Strathkelvin war memorial takes the form of a red sandstone memorial gateway in a gothic style which features some fine sculpture and is unusual in being assymetric in design to fit into the space between the buildings. It stands on the Main Street at the entrance to the kirkyard.

This is what I submitted to UKNIWM


The memorial is in the form of a gated red sandstone wall in front of a now disused church. This was the former Campsie Parish Church. It was destroyed by fire in the early 1980s and has not been rebuilt. The memorial gates are directly by the A891/ Main Street in Lennoxtown and open into the kirkyard. The gates are asymmetric with gateways for a car in the centre and people to the left. There is an arch over the main gateway with the main inscription above this. The centre of this arch is surmounted by a gothic cross. There are carved bas relief angels on either side of the main inscription. On either side of the arch are towers with ornately carved gothic tops. Set into these towers are matching sandstone slabs with the names of the fallen from WW1. A smaller brass plaque to the left of the smaller gateway commemorates the WW2 names of the fallen.


Main Inscription over archway leading to former Campsie Parish Church (High Kirk). This is carved into the sandstone

Some of the names on the Lennoxtown memorial are also on the memorial in the Campsie Parish church hall.

The Miller- Stirling brothers family was I believe the origin of the area in Glasgow of Millerstoun. Three brothers served the other was a POW.

R. Tolland DCM is usually listed as P Tolland (Patrick or Peter) and also saved two children who had fallen in the Clyde in 1911. He was killed jumping from a train at a nearby line and was buried in Pert Wellshill Cem with full military honours.

Regards

Fred

I though perhaps that Francis Robinson (WW2) should have been Francis Robertson ......?

BUT, I can't find a Francis Robertson on CWGC, only a Francis Robinson?

I know it's quite common for memorials to have errors, but this is the first time I've found a gravestone with a wrong surname?

Francis Robertson/Robinson had the middle name of Quigley - obviously his mother's maiden surname, so which is it - Robertson or Robinson??? (I doubt very much if there were two men both called Francis both killed on the same day.)

WILLIAM MURRAY SMITH – age 48 – Sergeant (2652) 1/9th (Dunbartonshire) Battalion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
William had been headmaster at West School, Maryculter, Kincardineshire where his two sons were born and where his first wife died in 1897 from typhoid due to a conaminated water supply to the schoolhouse. In 1901 he was lodging at the Lennox Arms Hotel in Lennoxtown and was headmaster of the Craighead School, Milton of Campsie, Dunbartonshire. His sons were living with his parents at Church Street in Inveraray, Argyllshire. William re-married in 1904 and he and his sons became members of the Territorial 9th A&SH. After he enlisted, he and his sons, Sergeant (1544) Henry Donald McIntyre Smith, and Sergeant (1545) Robert Campbell McIntyre Smith, landed with the 1/9th battalion in France in February 1915. The boys were wounded at the second battle of Ypres and William was wounded while he was visiting Henry who was waiting to be evacuated. William was removed to hospital but died of blood poisoning in the 14th General Hospital at Wimereux.
Born 1866 in Inveraray, Argyll. Son of Henry Dunn Smith and of Lillias Cameron (Murray) Smith.
Husband firstly of Sarah MacGregor (MacIntyre) Smith who he married in 1894 in Glasgow.
Husband secondly of Jessie Watson (McCulloch) Murray Smith of 125 Great Western Road, Glasgow who he married in 1904 in Glasgow.
Died of Wounds on 19 May 1915 and buried in Wimereux Communal Cemetery, France.

and his son

ROBERT CAMPBELL McINTYRE SMITH
– age 20 – Second Lieutenant, 1/8th (Argyllshire) Battalion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
Robert was living in Lenzie, Dunbartonshire and was a member of the Territorial 9th A&SH when he was mobilised as Private (1545) in August 1914. He landed in France with his battalion in February 1915 but was wounded at Ypres and evacuated to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. After he has recovered he was commissioned in October 1915 and posted to the 1/8th Battalion in France.
Born 1896 in Maryculter, Kincardineshire. Son of William Murray Smith and Sarah MacGregor (MacIntyre) Smith.
Killed in Action on 20 June 1916 and buried in Maroeuil British Cemetery, France.

Robert's brother, Henry Donald McIntyre Smith, also was a member of the Territorial 9th A&SH and was mobilised as Corporal (1544) in August 1914. He was wounded a few hours after his brother and was visited by his father in the medical dug-out when a shell burst nearby. His father was wounded by shrapnel and later he died. Henry continued to serve with his battalion and as Sergeant (325070) he was discharged from the army in February 1919. His address was 11 Hilldrop Crescent, Campden Road, London N7.
Born 1895 in Maryculter, Kincardineshire, I believe he died (aged 65) in 1961 at Rowley Regis in Staffordshire.


William and Robert are named on War Memorials in Milton of Campsie and on the Inveraray War Memorial.
