St Andrews War Memorial

St Andrews War Memorial

Those listed on the War Memorial in St Andrews, Fife. St Andrews War Memorial, which was unveiled on the 23rd of September 1922, was designed by Sir Robert Lorimer and built at a cost of £2,300. It is built of grey granite with a sandstone plinth and was erected at the west wall of the Cathedral grounds. The base has the following inscription: “To the glory of God and the honoured memory of the men of St Andrews who with courage and faith at their country’s call, laid down their lives that we who remain might live in freedom and peace”. In the surrounding wall are bronze plaques bearing the names of 185 men who fell in WW1. 4 names are currently unidentified: Andrew Brown Royal Artillery [possibly a duplication of Andrew Waters/Walters Brown], John Taylor Royal Highlanders, Y M Anderson Seaforth Highlanders [possibly a duplication of John Murray Anderson] and William J Taylor 1st Royal Dragoons [possibly William Jack Taylor who died of Pneumonia at Dunbar in 1919 but a military connection is unconfirmed].
