George Crawford was born in 1930. He recently told me, “Following living at the Dales from 1932, my parents moved to Stonefield Church Halls (61, Glasgow Road, Blantyre ) during the year 1936.
My father was Beadle at Stonefield Church which was situated about 200 yards away. The minister was Rev. James Gibb. There was a substantial wooden building in the grounds which was used for the playing of bowls and for childrens’ Sunday School supervised (I think) by a Miss Tirrel.”
