North Berwick

I have family from North Berwick. It is indeed a pretty place. Very clean - it is steeped in history, but I wanted to visit the "Old Kirk" and the memorials. It is a summer town and my 2 companions were happy to savour in this atmosphere. I think it is a wonderful place. I did not find any memorials with relatives but lots of interesting things too.
The list of names and inscriptions for both memorials are on this datapage.

Along the beach - facing east

St Andrews kirk


A Scottish Mason's grave

Inside the old kirk
This is the main square in North Berwick. There is small garden area and the 2 memorials are just before a gate that leads into the gardens
The two memorials
The tall one on the right is the memorial dedicated to the fallen from the Great War.
Facing it on the wall is the memorial for the Second World War
The UKIWM Ref for these memorials is  8547
