In 2008 we visited this area and collected the memorials but just forgot to take a photo of this one. In 2012 Ron Causton contacted us out the blue offering us his photo. He has been researching his family but can discover nothing about this Causton and neither could we. Thank you for the photo, Ron. If anyone has any info about this Causton please contact us and we'll pass it on.

N8, Elder Avenue, Earl Haig Memorial Hall

The Building is clearly inscribed with "Earl Haig Memorial" and "1928". The weather vane had a gun carriage in place of the traditional cockerel. We learn at OpinioN8 that in November 2012 a planning application was lodged to demolish this building.
