This memorial, identical to one in Stathern Parish Church, was removed from the Methodist Chapel when the property was sold. In 2014 it was placed in a newly created garden in front of the village War Memorial Institute, which also has a commemoration to the fallen of both World Wars on its outer wall. 

1914 – 1918 

To the Glory of God and in grateful and honoured memory of 

MAJOR J. C. WARREN  M. C.

“Let those who come after see to it that their names are not forgotten”
