Where did they pray?

Memorials in the places of worship of the men who died. Churches are in Bridge of Weir unless otherwise noted. St. Machar's Church was not named such until after the 1914-19 war. Until then it was Bridge of Weir Parish Church. Ranfurly Church merged with St Machar's Church in 1968. The Ranfurly and St Machar's memorials are on display in what then became St. Machar's Ranfurly Church.
