On War Memorials Online a site visit report on 15 November 2019 reports no improvement in condition, this is now on the War Memorials Trust list for action

  • Thanks to David Weir, the Heritage Officer at Paisley Central Library who looked through the Paisley WW1 Roll of Honour and came up with a list of names from "Paisley's Fallen" with a Doulton's connection. This helps identify the men listed and some of those missing. It doesn't list two of the names visible on the memorial so there is no guarantee these are the missing names from the memorial but it is a huge step forwards towards identifying all the Doulton's men lost in the First World War so a big thank you to David Weir and his team at paisley Library for their help.
