Featured Memorials - St Cuthbert's War Memorial Chapel, Edinburgh

Hidden away, but right in the centre of our Capital is a little gem. After the First World War the congregation of St Cuthbert’s chose to make an old part of the church into a small war memorial chapel and what a magnificent job they did of it.

St Cuthbert’s is worth a visit anyway if you like churches. It’s a fine late nineteenth century Romanesque style church with stained glass and marble frieze in the chancel.

If you ask the helpful volunteers on duty they’ll unlock the chapel doors and let you see it.

There’s no point in going into more detail here because we’ve got loads of photos on the Scottish War Memorials Project.
