The following names are listed on the Roll of Honour, hanging inside the door of Woodlawn Church. This is a tribute to those who once worshipped in Woodlawn Church and served in the First World War. A memorial also hangs on the southern wall in memory of those killed in action.

Comments about this page

  • Just done some research on some of the names from the 1911 census and the RAF military archives it would appear that the two deceased from the RFC/RAF are:

    James Aitken pilot 2nd Lt Royal Flying Corps may have been a son of John Aitken of Woodlawn, steward living in Woodlawn, Presbyterian. Listed in Royal Airforce archives in 49th squadron, missing during low bombing Marne bridges presumed dead 16/07/18.
    George Edward Ffrench, pilot 2nd Lt Royal Airforce 27th squadronis listed as a son of the Rector of Kilconnell, Lebel Holbrooke Ffrench, killed while setting out on a bombing raid on the 23rd of May, 2018.

    Every best wish for the celebrations in Woodlawn
