PostPosted: Sat Apr 25, 2015 9:09 pm    Post subject: Allan Park South Church Reply with quote

I was at the SAFHS conference at Allan Park South Church today and took the opportunity of checking out the war memorial (as one does!)

Allan Park South Church was formed as a result of an amalgamation of Allan Park Church and the South Church.
Allan Park was built in 1867 on the site of Busby’s Orchard between Dumbarton Road and Corn Exchange as a result of a “clash of personalities” between the minister and his assistant at the Erskine Church on St John Street. The assistant minister Reverend JT Gowanlock became minister of Allan Park which was part of the United Presbyterian Church.
The South Church was a product of the Disruption of 1843 and originally occupied a meeting house in the old High School (now the Stirling Highland Hotel). The congregation then moved to what is now the Baptist Church in Murray Place where they remained until 1970 when the amalgamation with Allan Park took place.

War memorials for both churches are situated in the vestibule, directly opposite the main door. (Great to see their prominent position; not great for photographing when the sun is streaming in and you can't close the doors for fear of seeming unwelcoming of visitors to the conference!)

Allan Park Church memorial is only for the Great War and reads:
To the Glory of God and to the lasting memory of the men of Allan Park Church, Stirling who died in the Great War, 1914-1919
The names are in two columns, in alphabetical order, and give rank/regiment as well. Below the names it reads:
Erected by the congregation Anno Domini MDCCCCXX
Dulce et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori

The names are:
John K Baker, Captain, Scottish Rifles

There are FOUR men with the name William Taylor on the Stirling memorial; one lived in Williamfield Avenue which is in St Ninian’s (separate from the town at the time) so I’m guessing he wasn’t on a memorial on a town centre church. One I can’t find so there’s a choice between these two:

TAYLOR, WILLIAM GORDON
Rank: Lance Serjeant

Grave Reference: E. 6.

Additional Information:

Likewise, there are two men called James Young on the Stirling memorial but one lived in Newhouse (also in St Ninian’s) so I’m guessing this is the correct one.
YOUNG, JAMES
Rank: Private
Service No: 34967
Date of Death: 13/05/1917

One way to check which William Taylor and James Young are the right ones is to see if the church records show an address; sometimes the Communion rolls are available in the local archives.

I haven’t done any research on WW2 casualties.

For some reason, I've been unable to edit Sandra's posts to insert her photos for Allan Park South Church's Memorials, so here they are.

This is Allan Park Church's Memorial (on the right)
