The listing by jrah60 13 Dec 2012 has been invaluable in locating the exact address of those who died in WW1.

However, does anyone know of a similar list for those from Cambuslang who died in service after WW1?

Regards
Ed

Ed - if you go to the CWGC search page and select "second world war" and then at the "Additional Information" box (at the bottom of the page) type Cambuslang, you get 113 records.
The first one on the list is:

GRAHAM, WILLIAM
Rank:Serjeant
Service No:1943112
Date of Death:20/01/1944
Age:30
Regiment/Service:Royal Engineers
851 Quarrying Coy.
Grave ReferenceV. F. 2.
CemeteryBONE WAR CEMETERY, ANNABA
Additional Information:
Son of Hugh Graham and of Christina Graham (nee Taylor); husband of Margaret Hope Graham (nee Wylie), of Eastfield, Cambuslang, Lanarkshire.

I know it will not be a complete record but it's a start.
