The informant looks like W M Beaton to me (Not Wm or Will).  Note this is 1954.

Where he died is not necessarily where he lived. 
He died at Royal Infirmary .....   Stirling
Denys (France); Rossier/Rousseau (Switzerland); Montgomery (Antrim, IRL & North Sydney NSW);  Finn (Co.Carlow, IRL & NSW); Wilson (Leicestershire & NSW); Blue (Sydney NSW); Fisher & Barrago & Harrington(all Tipperary, IRL)

I agree - I read the informant as:

W M Beaton
Nephew
Macrieston
Thornhill

I thought the place of death might be David Watson Home, Gargunnock - Lane doesn't look quite right to me.

Thankyou!!!  I knew you'd help. 

I just googled Macrieston Thornhill and found them straight away, the family could still be down there it seems.  And your correct, the informant was William Malcom Beaton.

Many many thanks  :D
