UKNIWM Ref: 44433

Located outside Kirkcolm Parish Church at OS Map Ref NX 027 687

When viewed from the road, this memorial looks a little odd and there is no obvious access to it. You soon realise that you have to enter the churchyard and walk along to the memorial, you had previously been looking at the back. From the front (inside the churchyard) there is an excellent background view over Loch Ryan.

I cannot see any order in the Great War names. I tried to identify John H McDowall but no luck on CWGC or SNWM.

This memorial was Cat B listed on 20 July 1972 as part of the listing for the church.

The listing included the following description of the memorial:

"WAR MEMORIAL: circa 1919. Celtic cross war memorial. Polished granite. Celtic cross set on chamfered pedestal. Engraved Celtic designs to N face of cross. N face of pedestal inscribed "Dedicated in honoured memory of the gallant men of the parish of Kirkcolm who fought and died in the Great War 1914-1918"; E and W faces inscribed with names; S face inscribed "1939-1945", with names. Saddleback coped rubble enclosure, with raised corners linked by iron railings; panel to S wall inscribed "Kirkcolm War Memorial 1914-1918". "
