Trinity St. Paul’s Parish Church, Beech Avenue, Cambuslang G72 8BX

OS Grid Ref: NS 637605



The present church is an amalgamation of Trinity Parish Church and St. Paul’s Parish Church.

The following is an extract from the Rutherglen Reformer.

“The Cambuslang Parish Church congregation have had their say on which of three sites is the best home for them.
A consultation exercise was held with the congregation - formed in May 2008 from the union of St Andrew’s, Cambuslang Old Parish and Trinity St Paul's Churches - to pick their preferred option as a home.
The congregation had previously voted on the former Old Parish building in Kirkhill as their home, but problems arose last September when it was discovered that structural works need to be carried out in the church halls in Kirkhill.
Since then the church has been based at the former St Andrew’s building in Main Street.
Last week, the church held their consultation to ascertain the congregation's most preferred option.
Using an alternative choice system, after eliminating the least popular options, two remained, Trinity St Paul's with St Andrew's, and St Andrew's with Kirkhill.
The option which emerged as having the highest preference was St Andrew's with Kirkhill.”

What this means is that Trinity St. Paul’s will close as a church. I don’t know what will happen to the memorials and stained glass windows.

The memorials are located in the main vestibule of the church.

The following memorial is from the Trinity Parish Church.

The Todd Memorial stained glass window is located in the gallery. It was gifted by Mrs Todd in memory of her sons William and Alex and her son-in-law, David Anderson.
It was unveiled in August 1919. Unfortunately the name of the artist is unknown.

Ian McKendrick is also named on Stonelaw High School (Rutherglen) Memorial. A search on Ancestry reveals a family tree with him named as John (Ian) McKendrick who died 10 July 1944. I have been unable to trace Ian McKendrick on CWGC but there is this man:

Name: MCKENDRICK, J
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Colour Sergeant
Service Number: 3317630
Regiment/Service: Highland Light Infantry (City of Glasgow Regiment), 2nd Bn, The Glasgow Highlanders.
Date of Death: 10/7/1944
