Wardlawhill Parish Church, Hamilton Road, Rutherglen G73 3DF

OS Grid Ref: NS 617615



Rutherglen West & Wardlawhill Church Hall, Hamilton Road, Rutherglen.


The memorials were formerly housed in the Wardlawhill Parish Church. The church was closed and subsequently was bought by the South Indian Cultural Centre of Scotland.
The centre is now called the Sri Sundara Ganapathy Temple.
The Memorials were then re-housed in the halls, which are now part of the Rutherglen West & Wardlawhill Church premises.
