Judging by the wording of this memorial, I think this might be the memorial for the whole of Chapelton. I'll maybe move it if everyone is of the same opinion.

In a 1971 Church year book it shows Chapelton linked with Strathaven Parish church, so if the names were to be on any other parish memorial I suggest it would be Strathaven.

Since these names aren't on the Strathaven memorial then I guess this is the civic memorial for Chapelton and should be moved.

I'll leave it here just now in case anyone disagrees.

Thanks

Adam

We've had no other comments on this so I think this should be moved to civic.
