Tombae Churchyard, Tomnavoulin, Glenlivet, Banffshire, Scotland. - COMPLETE

This Community is to honour those from the Great War who are remembered in the Tombae Churchyard, Tomnavoulin, Glenlivet, Banffshire, Scotland. Tombae - A chapel under the patronage of the Gordons of Minmore had existed on the haugh of the Livet at Kilnnakyle since the early 18th century. This chapel was destroyed after the Rebellion of 1745 but was repaired and served the neighbourhood until the building of the new church. The foundation stone of the Church of the Incarnation at Tombae was laid in 1827, and work was completed just a matter of days before the great Moray flood of 1829. The design of the church was by the Aberdeen architect John Gall, although some sources attribute its original design to the parish priest, George Gordon. The interior was remodelled by Bishop James Kyle in the 1840's. The main design of the church is in Gothic style, and the impressive western frontage features medieval elements such as pinnacled buttresses, battlements and lancet windows. The interior has a lofty rib-vaulted ceiling supported by cast iron Gothic style pillars. The burial ground dates to the early nineteenth century and some of the tombstones are cut from local slate.
