Auchtertool Kirk Est. 1178. Welcome to the website of Auchtertool Parish Church

Auchtertool Kirk War Memorial


Auchtertool’s one and only war memorial is not a built structure in the village (like in most places here) but, unusually, a window in the kirk.

The parish of Auchtertool was larger in the past, because of that you find names here  which you might have expected in Lochgelly or Cowdenbeath!

An extract from Fifeshire Advertiser of Saturday 19th Nov 1921: “Memorial Window at Auchtertool 

A beautiful ceremony took place on Sunday (13 Nov 1921) afternoon in Auchtertool Parish Church at the unveiling of a war memorial stained glass window. Rev. JSW Irvine, minister of the church, preached to a specially large congregation. The unveiling was performed by Mr. D Rolland, grieve at Linnhead farm, who lost two sons in the war. The subject of the window is ‘Crowning the Warrior’, a kneeling soldier receiving a crown of laurel wreaths from an angel. There are over 40 names on the memorial of men from the parish who fell in the war, including a large number from Cowdenbeath, a part of which is in the parish of Auchtertool”.

Underneath the window has been added a book sculpted from sandstone engraved with the names of the fallen of world war 2.

Every year on Remembrance Sunday (Sunday closest to November 11th) the service of worship includes our community’s act of remembrance. We reflect on the terrible cost of war and hear of God’s promise that one day “war will be no more”.

Recently we have remembered each person entered on the war memorial on the Sunday closest to the date they fell. Behind each entry is a personal story of a real person, a member of our community.
