  • (Dundee Courier 31st March 1919) The Parish Councillors of Inverkeilor, on a representation made to them, have taken up the matter of the erection of a suitable memorial to those belonging to the parish who have fallen in the war. At a meeting held in Arbroath on Saturday - Mr D.C.F. Rutherford Lindsay Carnegie of Kinblethmont presiding - they discussed the form which the memorial should take, and ultimately decided that an effort should be made to raise the sum of £400 for the purpose of placing an obelisk in a prominent part of the village of Inverkeilor. The representatives of the West, Middle and East Wards were appointed collectors of subscriptions in their respective districts, and Mr Allexander Inglis, inspector of poor, secretary and treasurer. [note that a mercat cross was the final design]
