Glasgow sets up project to record its war memorials
University students are helping Glasgow to map the city’s war memorials in a unique partnership which it hopes will help protect them for future generations.
Glasgow City Council’s Historic Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde’s Business School have challenged 240 first year students to gather and record information on all war memorials in the city as part of their course.
The majority of war memorials were created by a local community through public subscriptions. These communities maybe geographical or based on a workplace, place of worship school or social group.

It is dedicated to everyone who served their country and has a plaque dedicated to James Stokes VC 1915 -1945. I have posted a few pics on the Glasgow cemetarys thread, but I will post the memorial here as well, its a very modern one and was opened by Councillor Mutter in 2005.
The cemetary also has a very early grave stone dated 1741:
