There is a death for a Robert Cochrane in Garngadhill in 1915 which would match with a birth year of 1844. Can't easily see this individual in the 1911 census index on SP.

The surname Cochran(e) sounds Irish to me...
The Surnames of Scotland (1947) says, "Cochran, Cochrane. Of territorial origin from the five-merk lands of Cochrane (old, Coueran), near Paisley, Renfrewshire.

It quotes The Clans, Septs and Regiments of the Scottish Highlands (1908) as saying that "some MacEacherens who removed to the Lowlands adopted the surname of Cochrane to conceal their origin. This has misled some persons into imagining that there is a connection between the names or that Cochrane may be derived from an old spelling of MacEachern (MacKauchern)".

The Surnames of Scotland also lists 18 alternative spellings of the name.

Rosie,

That death you found 1903 could possibly be the right man as there's a John Cochran at 22 Lancefield Street 1905, brother maybe?

Would be good to know what the RCE says?

Occ. as Engineer's Gate Keeper could possibly fit with earlier census info. Machine Maker i.e. Engineering Industry  :-\
