UKNIWM Ref: 44359
there is also a chancel window and a rededication plaque that forms part of this memorial.

OS Map Ref: NX 808 598

This is the parish memorial even though it is inside the church. The church has sometimes been known as 'the church you can see' because of its elevated position in the landscape. It is signposted from the main road between Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas.

I need to return to re-do all the photographs in this church. This was previously posted in church memorials but has now been moved to civic.

Should anyone be interested, Buittle is pronounced 'bittle'!!

There are several individual memorials in this church and I am due back to get some better photos plus the one I missed.

One man listed is Rev J Davis who served as an RAMC private in the Great War. There is a brass plaque to him inside the church.

There is also a 'gravestone' memorial inside the old ruined church in the grounds of the current church. I will post that gravestone on the SWGP but of course the grave is empty as he is buried at Amara.

The church has been closed for worship since late 2009 and its future is uncertain. The session clerk has promised to keep me informed of developments.

There are a lot of photos of this window but there is a lot of detail to show.
