Seven Trades represented at Remembrance Sunday

The Hammermen and Skinners were both represented at the Remembrance Sunday ceremony. Both Deacons and nine members of the Hammermen attended the Church of the Holy Rude service. They then walked down to the refurbished war memorial where both Deacons laid wreaths on behalf of their respective trades.

Pictures below show Deacon Stuart Campbell of the Incorporation of Hammermen laying their wreath.

About Seven Incorporated Trades of Stirling

The power to grant incorporated status to trades rested with the magistrates of royal burghs. An incorporated trade was granted the right to monopolise and control their trade within the burgh. Trade Incorporations were usually constituted by a seal of cause granted by the magistrates but some were constituted by use and consuetude. A strict monopoly was enforced within the burgh and non-members of an incorporation were not allowed to trade within the bounds of the town.
