There is a 3 light stained glass window memorial in Stamperland church. This was originally in Woodside church and is for Alf Webster, the stained glass artist killed in WW1, by his son Gordon.

St Thomas Methodist Church, Gallowgate war memorial(s).
This is probably a vain hope, but does anyone know what became of the war memorials from this church?

It stood at the corner of the Gallowgate and Wesleyan Street. It closed in 1973 and stood derelict for sometime.

There actually two war memorials - a plaque on the wall (possibly WW1 only) and a stained glass window. The stained glass window was one of a pair either side of organ and pulpit - the other celebrated the centenary in the early 1950s.

When the church closed its "legal"successor was Woodlands Methodist Church (the former St Johns congregation) but most of the remaining congregation went to Shettleston Methodist Church. The neither memorial is at either of them.

I posted this on the GWF some time ago and research by a number of people found no answer.

Unfortunately, that's not it. That is St Thomas's Gallowgate Church of Scotland. If I remember rightly about half a mile further east on the same side of the road.

There is a picture of St Thomas's Methodist just before demolition here:

(For anyone who knew the old Gallowgate it was opposite the Orient Cinema.
