Adam,

No, neither designer nor sculptor, as far as I know, had a hand in the Stirling memorial. The Falkirk one predates Stirling which was unveiled a year later.
I have to check the names again but am fairly sure that the A & S H fallen on the Falkirk memorial are on the Stirling one. I'm working on a list of the Falkirk participants in the war at the moment.

Adam,

The sculptor of the Stirling memorial was Hubert Paton.

Thanks ahr

I'm sure the Falkirk one must have influenced the Stirling one if not it is an awfully big coincidence.
