For this church:
In addition to the principal War Memorial, there are memorials to others who were killed fighting for their country.
Stone war memorial in the form of a wall monument, with the names of the fallen of the First World War inscribed within an aedicule with fluted pilasters under an interrupted segmental pediment which contains a cross botonnée inside a laurel wreath. Additional names from the Second World War have been added to the frame.
The inscription reads:
Note that some of these are also listed on the Monuments and Memorials page.
On a brass plaque in the shape of a shield, with a decorated border of a frieze of shamrocks, and images of two medals flanking the crest of the Weldon family, the bust of Queen Elizabeth Ist, with the motto, BENE FACTUM, in the base, memorial to Captain George Weldon, d1899. Black script with red capital letters.
The wording of this memorial seems to have been confused and it is hard to know how to rearrange the lines to read correctly, but an alternative layout for the second part might be:
killed in action at Talana Hill, October 20th 1899, aged 33, while bringing a wounded soldier into shelter, under heavy fire. Buried in Dundee cemetery by four men of his own company, October 21st 1899, for he was beloved by all.
The Dundee cemetery mentioned is that in Natal, South Africa, not Scotland, with the battle of Talana Hill fought on October 20th 1899 during the Second Boer War. Talana was one of three hills overlooking Dundee and the 2nd battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers led the attack on the hill but were held down by heavy fire from the Boers and only took the hill after fierce fighting. Captain Weldon was the first officer of the regiment to be killed in the Boer War, and had joined in 1886, being promoted to Captain in 1896. His body was apparently located after the battle by his dog. He was the eldest son of Col. Thomas Weldon (1834-1905) and Helen Rachel Louisa Young Simpson.
