The memorial for the parish of Kenmore is to be found within Kenmore Kirk, Kenmore, Tayside. It takes the form of a small Celtic style wheel cross with crossed swords and a flag at the base. It lists 36 men who gave their lives in World War 1. Monies to erect the memorial were raised by public subscription and it was unveiled on 22nd May 1921. The men are listed in a scattered manner, each under the district they were associated with.
