I would add a link to Alexander's stone in Sandymount Cemetery, but unfortunately my Photobucket account is inactive and I can't seem to get it re-activated.
Their parents were Daniel [died 21st April 1938] and Annie Meighan nee Steven [died 12th August 1923].
The Monumental Inscription on the stone reads:
"Died on service

Entered into everlasting life at Oxford 6th November 1918
In memory of our beloved second daughter WINIFRED
Who entered into the rest of God 1st May 1918 at Prestwick."
