Sister Isabel Mackenzie also appears on Melness war Memorial in Northern Scotland.
She is buried in a family plot in that cemetery after dying from influenza in November 1918 9 days before the Armistace.
She lost 2 brothers in France and 1 in Gallipoli.

Browsing through the Dundee Church memorials section I noticed in the St Patrick's Church Dundee memorial a mention of "Sister Mary Aldhelm (Annie McMurray) Franscian missionary of Mary who died in Nov 1943 in a Japanese Prisoner of War Camp"

Haven't seen this Wren listed yet in this thread

MILNE HOME, ISABEL MARY
Rank: Third Officer
Regiment/Service: Women's Royal Naval Service
Unit Text: H.M.S. 'Cormorant'
Age: 23
Date of Death: 19/08/1941
Additional information: Daughter of Sir John Hepburn Milne Home, Kt., D.L., J.P., and of Lady Milne Home, of Walkerburn, Peeblesshire.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Panel 61, Column 1.
Memorial: PORTSMOUTH NAVAL MEMORIAL

CWGC lists the parents home as Walkerburn but the announcement in The Scotsman on 3rd September 1941 has it as Canonbie. I assume it was Canonbie in 1941 and Walkerburn post-1945

Milne Home - Reported missing at sea in August 1941 while on her way to duties overseas. Third Officer Isabel Mary Milne Home WRNS. Only daughter of Sir John and Lady Milne Home, Irvine House, Canonbie, Dumfries-shire

Update 9.3.9

Forgot to check at the time I originally posted this. She is listed on the Canonbie War Memorial.
