1. When Kyloe Church closed, the memorials were moved to Fenwick Village Hall. That hall has now closed, and in 2017 the memorials were stored in West Kyloe until they were rehoused and rededicated in St.John the Baptist Church, Lowick Church on 12th November 2017.

2. The Bible reading (not on the Order of Service) at that service was Ecclesiasticus 44 v 1-14.

3. Following the dedication in the church, the people moved to the war memorial in Lowick to complete the act of Remembrance.
