These are the Great War memorials that were once located in Newhaven-on-Forth Parish Church and Newhaven Free Church (later St Andrews Church). The wooden memorials belonged to St Andrews. They are now located in the cafe area of the present Newhaven Church on Craighall Road.

Regards
LIT

The United Free Church memorials are the ones with the small carvings. Thanks to Andrew Grant for these close up photographs

The former Newhaven Parish Church has been converted to flats and moved into the basement of the old church. The memorials of the Parish Church and the old United Free Church (which has been converted to the climbing centre Alien Rock) are still there. The church operates a cafe and these memorials are on the walls behind the cafe door.

I have taken a snapshot of the church from Google Street View. It is on a hill!



The names of both the Parish Church and the UF Church were used to make the Newhaven Civic Memorial.
