I'm assuming that all those listed died to be on the memorial, but it seems odd that some entries don't seem to be filled in with a "killed in action" or "Missing, Presumed Dead" at the end of each entry?

DelBoy,

You will see quite a few of these Rolls of Honour in Church of Scotland Kirks. They did, as far as possible, list all those connected with the parish/church who enlisted. Detail varies enormously but those that were killed, usually, had this information inserted alongside their name.
According to this Roll of Honour 8 of those from Kinnaird Parish gave up their lives.

Mark
