The 1911 census shows a "Guilio Marchetti" age 22 from Italy living at 14 Princes Street, Ardrossan with Alfonso Agostina and his wife Assunta. Guilio's occupation is confectioner and it appears he was working for Alfonso.

Re: Quintin Service Stirrat 1887-1917

Quintin, a baker by trade, is distantly related to me through the Service, Stirrat and Roney (Rooney) familes who hail from The Three Towns: Ardrossan, Saltcoats & Stevenston in Ayrshire, Scotland.

His great grandfather John Service was the carpenter who contributed to the construction of Saltcoats Town Hall in 1826. His grandfather was Alexander Stirrat c.1818-c.1852 a seaman, his father Alexander Stirrat 1845-c.1905-11 was also a seaman - thus the reason for residing in Partick, Glasgow. The Stirrat family would have been acquaited with my grandfather, James Johnson 1885-1961 who was a close relative living in Partick.
It seems that when Quintin's father died his mother Catherine Stirrat nee McMillan 1851-1926 returned to reside in Dockhead Street, Saltcoats. He had siblings - Margaret Fullarton Stirrat 1884-1970 and James McMillan Stirrat 1889-1952. Sadly, I do not possess a photo of Quintin.

Centenary of the death of Rev Cpt James Barbour Orr, Royal Scots Fusiliers

I’m delighted to receive the news that on the 100th anniversary of his sacrifice James Orr’s death will be commemorated by his old university.

The chaplain of Glasgow University, the Reverend Stuart MacQuarrie, has worked with colleagues to ensure that a short biography of Captain Orr is now on the University’s webpages. 

Said Stuart - “We will commemorate Captain Orr’s life on the centenary of his death at 09.00 am in the University Chapel on 31st July when the information on the Roll of Honour will be read out. We will then lay a poppy cross in his honour at the Memorial Garden adjacent to the Commemorative Gates on University Avenue. Captain Orr’s name will be added to the Chapel Memorial Plaques with those of several others who for various reasons were not included when the Chapel was opened in 1929.”

Welcome Mark and pleased that your relative's details have been added to the "Uni" Roll of Honour.

I see he is named on the Ministers' Memorial in St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.
