George Mitchell Richmond Memorial
St Paul's & St George's Church
York Place (Queen Street)
Edinburgh

St Paul's & St George's Church has recently opened after a 30 month refurbishment.

Certain memorial plaques were retained on the walls throughout the building work.

This memorial has been retained but unfortunately is now in a small recess behind the wall of the new lifts.

This is as good an angle you will get. There is another complimentary memorial at the other side of the West (main) doorway in the same situation.
