'Shortly after the First World War the Kilmacolm War Memorial Committee compiled a Roll of Service for those from Kilmacolm Parish who had served and died during the conflict.
As the Committe recorded 'It has proved a task of considerable trouble and difficulty, and, notwithstanding all the care taken, it may well be that errors and omissions may yet be discovered.'
The publication found it 'impossible to obtain a complete list of the Clune Brae district' and therefore it was decided that it was 'better to omit it altogether'. On the other hand the publication 'includes the names of some formerly resident in the parish, who feel that they still belong to it and desire on this occasion to claim their citizenship.'
