St. Mark's was demolished and, I believe, united with the church in Letham. Letham itself was demolished a few years ago and rebuilt. Enquiry with church reveals there are no memorials within the new building but would not say if there had been memorials.

At least the names are recorded.

If it is was a tablet was it made of marble? If so it may have been less moveable than brass or wood. Maybe bronze though so we'll not give up hope.
