I realise that this is an old thread, but I'm hoping someone may be able to assist.

Herbert Russell Purvis Adam, age 27, son of Robert Purvis Adam (drysalter) & Isabella Thomson Wallace, Galashiels, was killed in a road traffic accident in Stirling around 20th/21st April 1920.

He and his brother James were living in Denny (Stirlingshire) at the time and Herbert was employed in the Carrongrove Paper Mill there.

I have a newspaper clipping which says the funeral took place from his father's house, 'The Elms' Galashiels, but it doesn't say to which cemetery.

I would love a photo of his grave to add to an update to the Denny & Dunipace WW1 Roll of Honour which I have been working on. (Herbert is listed in the original D & D RoH and on Carrongrove Paper Mill's 'Those Who Served' memorial.) He served with the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).
