Statement of Interest

Landmark Ecclesiastical building in use as such. William Hay

was born Cruden 1818. Trained as an architect when

convalescent. St. James was his first job: joined John

Henderson 1844, thereafter to G.G. Scott's and America and

Canada. The chancel was designed after he had formed a

partnership with John Henderson's Son 1864.
