The one living in Kennedy St could be the son of John and Isabella, surprising that I don't get him on the armed services returns as dead.  The memorial could be wrong of course!

Could he have died from wounds and his name added to the memorial at a later date?

If he died after 1925 he should be on Scotlandspeople

The son of Thomas and Annie was a furnace filler

The son of John and Isabella was a Boiler fireman (retrd) when he died 1955

I searched for his death, albeit in Lanarkshire he would need to have died before the end of 1922 I think to be included on the memorial.  It looks like his son Thomas married in Shotts in 1931, I wonder if the family had moved to Shotts

Could you maybe look for that on the VR?

Swally, the VRs on SP are free to search on indexed results (not viewing individual images, 2 units still for that) until tomorrow. See www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=708341.0
