Once wall mounted in Craig Parish church, the memorial still resides in the church but has been taken down since it became a private dwelling house.

Derek,

Does Adrian Diack reside in the old church? I note the date 2002 - was that when the photographs were taken and if so are they still there at present?

The photos were taken in 2002 when the church was being made into a house and removed from their wall mountings. They are indeed still inside. I believe Mr Diack still resides there.

[edit - he no longer lives at the address]

Derek.

Good that they have been retained. It would have been nice if they had been displayed somewhere locally perhaps.
