Quintinshill train crash May 1915 Scotsguards
« on: Thursday 29 March 18 21:01 BST (UK) »
Would appreciate help in finding a list of names of those who died and those who survived.
Have seen photographs of the memorial in Edinburgh but, unable to read some of the names clearly.

The soldiers were not Scots Guards but men of the 1st/7th Royal Scots.

Guidance on the names here:
