Details War Memorial to Mortlach parishioners who died in WWI and II, built in 1920 by A Marshall Mackenzie and Son. It is in the form of a bronze gothic cross with attendant angels on top of a granite-ashlar tapering pillar with a bronze wreath on the front face. It is on a square die and stepped base decorated with stylised bronze laurel leaves, and inscribed with the names of the fallen in the 1914-18 war, and later inscriptions record the fallen from the 1939-45 war. It lies within a garden of remembrance that is fronted by a low coped rubble wall with spearheaded railings and gates with plaques displaying the dates of the two wars. It was unveiled in November 1920 by the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, and visited by HRH Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, in April 1920. A full transcription of memorial is held in the AAS Digital Archive.
