Notes: The minutes do not refer to Cousin by name. The church was a classic example of the 'plain unadorned economical plan' reccommended by the metropolitan leaders of the Secession. Cousin & Gale probably supervised it as it had the same fine bargeboard detailing as the Royal Caledonian Hall.

See separate entry for the new Kirkcaldy Free Church (St Brycedale Church) which replaced this building in 1881.
