A previous post from Adam in the Fife 'to do' list;

I think this may be the Institute at Crossgates. Now Crossgates Community Centre

4.Crossgates War Memorial Institute (44474)



From The Central Fife Times of Wednesday, 12th November, 2008

http://www.centralfifetimes.com/news/cowdenbeath/articles/2008/11/12/30627-communities-remember-war-dead/

In Crossgates a service was held at the village church at 9.45am. There were three acts of remembrance the first being at the Mossgreen cemetery memorial; then Crossgates Community Centre and finally at Hill of Beath Ex-Servicemen's Club.

Thanks

Adam

I see the Second World War dates at the bottom but no names. Is there another panel with those names out of shot?

WMR 44474 is now for the plaques.

WMR 85434 is for the Hall itself.

This split is best practice, in case the Hall itself shuts in the future, and the plaques are moved elsewhere
