The Martyr's Pillar, Maryhill Old graveyard

Postby Chudleigh » Sun Dec 01, 2019 5:58 pm

A memorial to trade union martyr, George Millar, was erected in the graveyard of Maryhill Old parish church, following his murder during a strike at Dawsholm Print Works in 1833. An iron monument with a bronze plaque recorded the event and when the fire-damaged church was being demolished, the Council took the plaque into storage, with a view to its possible installation in Maryhill Burgh Halls. (Further information is available at ... artyr.html)

Can anyone give an update on the whereabouts of the plaque and plans for its future display?
