from FreeBMD : Deaths Dec 1917
ANDERSON Herbert N S 18 Beverley 9d 126 (East Riding of Yorkshire)
There's lots of detail of his life and death, and family history at:
http://www.bishopburton.org.uk/s1/attachments/article/307/HNS%20Anderson.pdf

Including this:
From the Kinross-shire Advertiser 29th December 1917
At the close of another year our Roll of Honour, during the past twelve months, bears eloquent testimony to the awful whirlpool into which the war has drawn the flower of our youth and manhood, and once more it is our painful duty to chronicle the close of another young life whose past attainments held out promises of a brilliant future. In the midst of scholastic and university honours Lieutenant Herbert N. s. Anderson unhesitatingly answered his country's call and entered his new sphere of patriotic service with the same spirit of determination and intellectual aptitude that had previously earned for him a distinguished place in the class room. As his term of probation was drawing to a close he looked forward with eagerness to active service, and, on the day when he met his death, a letter reached his parents in Kinross in which he expressed ardent hopes of being shortly sent to France with his squadron. From the brief press report we learn that at half past eight on Monday morning an
aeroplane fell from a great height on to certain golf links in Yorkshire. The machine was smashed, and the pilot, Second Lieutenant H. N. S. Anderson, of R. F. C., died at the local Cottage Hospital from his injuries soon afterwards. A large number of the inhabitants of the town witnessed the accident. The only son of Provost and Mrs M. C. Anderson, The Hollies, Kinross, Lieutenant Anderson received his early scholastic training here, and from his most youthful days showed signs of outstanding abilities which were further evidenced when he entered Merchiston Castle. From this famous School he carried off the prestigious Rogerson Scholarship and, later, announced in our columns in April, won an exhibition at Cambridge. As we have said the call of duty prompted him to relinquish his bright prospects, and, obtaining a commission in The Royal Flying Corps, his capabilities procured for him in a remarkably short time the tribute from his O.C. and brother officers that he was "a very fine pilot and second to none. They in the Squadron looked for splendid things from him in France." Coming as it did, on the eve of Christmas, the sad news of his death struck a discordant note in the harmony of the season's greetings, and a cloud of sorrow passed over our community where his successes had been followed with the deepest interest and admiration. On every hand feelings of sincere sympathy with his parents and sister were expressed for the irreparable loss. They had sustained and the sacrifice they had made for their Country's honour.
The remains were brought to Kinross on Thursday evening and conveyed to St Paul's Episcopal Church. The funeral took place today to the East Burying Ground. After a service in the Church the coffin was conveyed to the burial ground on a gun carriage headed by pipers from the 4th R.S.F.
A firing party of 40 men was provided by the 4th R.S.F.
The Kinross Town council attended in an official capacity. The Kinross-shire Volunteers also attended as a mark of respect to the father of the deceased. The officers from the Camp and a large number of the general public attended.
