The brewery was demolished in 1995.

 

Question

David wrote:

The Memorial Plaque

"The EdinPhoto site has some photos of the demolition of Youngers Brewery in Holyrood Rd.

Demolition of brewery buildings in Holyrood Road  -  1995

My photo, at the top of this page, is of the memorial plaque that was placed on the Brewery wall, commemorating those employees who lost their lives while serving during WWII.

I took this photo in 1986 while on a visit to Edinburgh.  My uncle's name (Brown R) is on the list."

Where is it Now?

"I have been unable to find the relocation site of the plaque (following the demolition of buildings on this site in 1995).  Maybe another reader of your site can supply that information, which would be greatly appreciated.

In June 2007, I visited my uncle's grave at the war cemetery at Anzio, Italy, a beautifully landscaped and maintained cemetery.

I would like to think that Edinburgh has treated the plaque with similar care."

Thank you to Jim Bull, Edinburgh who wrote

The Memorial Plaque

"In 1995, I enquired about the re-siting of the plaque and was told that it  was to be relocated to within the Canongate Kirk.

I don't  know whether it has been relocated there or not."

The Memorial Plaque

"Thank you for including the answer from Jim Bull.  I followed up with a query to the Canongate Kirk via an email.  The response was that the Memorial Plaque is indeed at the Kirk and is situated on the exterior of the west wall  -  a satisfactory solution to a mystery that has plagued me for some time."
