I just checked what details I have of possibly his brother Malcolm, son of Thomas and Ann Fisher Vincent, 2, Main Street, Newmains.

Sancti,
I don't have access to these?  What I can tell you however is -
I found 2 marriages in Cambusnethan for the name William Vincent
 
1905 VINCENT WILLIAM BROWN WILHELMINA CAMBUSNETHAN /LANARK
 
I also found the above couple on the 1911 census with 2 children Thomas and Roseanna
 
There are no marriage or death records in Scotland for the daughter Roseanna
I can't see a death record for Wilhelmina in Scotland using her maiden name as an additional search.
 
It looks like the family left Scotland after the 1911 census but I can't find a passenger record for them so maybe they went to England for William to work in a steel works there.
 
I couldn't find a passenger record for his Brother Malcolm going to Canada but found the family on the 1911 Canada census. As you know Malcolm enlisted there and died of Appendicitis on 31 July 1918 in Granville Canadian Special Hospital, Buxton, England.
 
I found a passenger record for his wife and children returning to Scotland on 4 September 1919 and gave their address as Main Street, Newmains
The CWGC gives her address as  79, Norfolk Rd., Byker, Newcastle-on-Tyne, England.
Maybe she moved there to be near Wilhelmina and her family.

The floor is yours?

Guys,  thanks for all the help.  William Vincent served withe South African forces during the Great War and died.  His brother Malcolm served withe Canadians and also died, he is buried in Derbyshire.  I think I now have details on the guys who are named on the Newmains, Morningside and Cambusnethan war memorials.  Over 170 men are named yet many more made the ultimate sacrifice.  Thanks again,  Swally

Yes, I did, with the help of the Heritage Lottery I managed to get it printed.
I am very proud of the 3 books.

Ta,

   There is a marriage in 1926 at Blythswood: Rose Vincent to John Craig.      It is on Scotlands People.
