Hamilton Memorial Park
« on: Wednesday 03 March 21 21:57 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone have photographs of the individual memorial panels at the memorial in Hamilton Memorial Park.  I am looking for the Prisk brothers, one in WW1 and the other in WW2.

A very nice lady who works for the Heritage Department of Hamilton Libraries called in a few weeks ago and took some photographs for me which was very kind of her.  Thank you very much for offering to do the same it is much appreciated.  Graham

That's good
This post caught my eye only because of the name - I live about 10 minutes walk away from Prisk St which is named after another of the brothers  :)

Greetings from down under Graham.

While censured in the past for a similar naming of a person, and their employment position, I've just been advised by ROOTSCHAT management, that what you did is now deemed OK.

But naming of living people and giving personal details re contact address and date of birth etc still contravenes international privacy laws.

So I was a bit too quick off the mark.
