I have found information the the following two soldiers are listed on the Hamilton Town House War Memorial;

GARRITY, James Private 13239 6th Bn Royal Dublin Fusiliers
Born: Hamilton, Lanarkshire Enlisted: Hamilton
Date of Death: 09/08/1915 Cause: Killed in action.
Grave/Memorial: Panel 190 to 196. Helles Memorial.
Other Memorials: Commemorated on the Hamilton Town House War Memorial, 102 Cadzow Street, Hamilton, Lanarkshire.

GARRITY, John Private 13241 6th Bn Royal Dublin Fusiliers
Born: Hamilton, Lanarkshire Enlisted: Hamilton
Date of Death: 09/08/1915 Cause: Killed in action.
Grave/Memorial: Panel 190 to 196. Helles Memorial.
Other Memorials: Commemorated on the Hamilton Town House War Memorial, 102 Cadzow Street, Hamilton, Lanarkshire.

As can be seen their service numbers would indicate that they enlisted together possibly on the same day.

Would anyone know any further information on them, i.e. relationship, next of kin etc.

Many thanks

There are a few memorials on the site where the name plaques have not been photographed which allow names to be read.
