Falkyrn,
That is a great site, and for the men to be remembered and named is a great thing, they will be pleased.

I have had a look at your suggested link and have found my G, G,G. Grandad Montague McNab on the list.  Killed by a falling object on 1st Nov 1887.

Thanks for making this information available to people.

Much appreciated

Last week, I was in South Queensferry and there is a beautiful memorial adjacent to the lifeboat station commemorating those killed in the construction of the bridge.

Thank you for that info.

 We will have to plan a weekend in Scotland and go and have a look.
