The Yester War Memorial is just outside the gates to the Church.

The inscription reads:
In Greatful memory of those who died for us 1914-1918.

James Bald *
Robert Bald *
Marcus Brown *
William Brown *
John C B Crozier
Andrew Dickson
John Donaldson *
Murdoch Fraser
Lord Arthur Hay *
John Ketchen
James Lawrie
Peter Lugton *
Thomas Mack
Robert Neilson *
David Ritchie
James Sibbald
Charles P Y Stark
William Welsh

*= Grave stone in Cemetery

However there seems to be a few who are mentioned on family stones in the Churchyard but are not on the Memorial.
John, Robert and William Ramage (3 brothers)
John Galloway Watson.
Perhaps they are on an other War memorial in the local area?
