There is no Military headstone in Selkirk Cemeteries to James Davidson.I am surprised. He was 30 yrs when he died in France He was born 16-3-1889 in selkirk to selkirk parents John Davidson and Elizabeth Goodfellow and they were married in sellkirk 23-1-1885 and had 5 children. In the 1911 census they are living at 36 Cannon Street and he is a PIECER in the woollen mill.Do you have the Commonwealth War Graves Commission details of his grave in France and the free certificate.? Hope this helps.
Thanks.  I have, yes.  I don't think he's the man I am after.  It's unlikely a piecer would have an inclination to work in what was "delightfully" called at the time , a pauper lunatic asylum. 

I'll provisionally put a line through this one.  Thank you again.

I think this is the family in Shawfield cemetery Selkirk.
"103      In memory of  ANDREW  SCOTT  died 1926 his wife  ELEANOR  CRAWFORD"
"died 1930 their only son  L/Cpl. JOHN  C. SCOTT  Killed in Action 1915 their eldest"
"daughter ELEANOR  I. SCOTT  and her husband  A.S.M. MASON . Both interred Wellington New Zealand their second daughter  MARY  SCOTT  died 1969 their daughter  AGNES  T. SCOTT died 1989"
"nd"

Hope this helps
