World War 1& 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Les Horn 2016

The village of Kinlochleven lies at the eastern end of Loch Leven, and is near the borders of both Argyllshire and Invernessshire, Scotland, 5 miles north-east of Invercoe. The village was formed from two previously separate small communities - Kinlochmore to the north of the River Leven in Inverness-shire and Kinlochbeg to the south of the Leven in Argyll - following the construction of an aluminium smelter and associated housing for its employees. The memorial is to be found in the Main Street, Kinlochleven, Lochaber and takes the form of a Celtic cross set on a tapering blockwork plinth with decoration on the front of the cross and a plaque on 12 o'clock face. There are 41 names for World War 1 and twenty-two for World War 2. The memorial covers the Invernessshire parishes of Ballachulish & Corran of Ardgour and the Argyllshire parishes of Lismore & Appin.

Please note that the names have been sorted into alphabetical order within conflict here for ease of research and reading.
