St Michaels`s Church,Crossmichael ,Dunmfries and Galloway,Scotland. A kirk or church stood on the site as early as 1547. The church bell was made in 1611 and the unusual round tower may have been added in the same year to the old church, which was rebuilt in 1731. The Church was enlarged between 1783 and 1790, but remained as it was until the 1963 addition of a vestry and the 1971 construction of a porch and stair housing.
The churchyard has a number of interesting tombstones. The earliest is from 1547, to Randolph Ross. The 1843 Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Rev. David Walsh, is buried near the Church, also Rev. Andrew Dick – who died at the start of his sermon – and Rev. John Murdoch who died in 1701.
The saddest memorial is possibly that of four brothers of the Mclellan family, killed in the 1914-1918 war; the memorial tablets are near the pulpit.
