  1. Very interested to see this piece of history from Oct 1976 with Rev John Silcox and family. My wife and I were married in High Blantyre Old Parish Church on the 30th Oct 1976 and I think, from memory, we were the second couple that John Silcox married in his time in Blantyre. Because of my work, there was no rehearsal: the feeling was that since my best man was another minister ( Rev Duncan Shaw now of Bathgate St John’s) there was enough expertise to guide me through the ceremony. It certainly seems to have worked since we will be celebrating 40 years of marriage in 2016 ! John Silcox went to Dunblane about 10 years after this and remains there.
