There is a Glenburn Street in Port Glasgow, which is just along the road from Greenock.

Glasgow isn't in Stirlingshire - it's Lanarkshire - not anywhere near where the county borders are.

I had a look on various 'Blitz' sites but couldn't immediately find anyone remotely matching Agnes.

Ken,

If you have a we look at the link on the above thread (War Graves Site), I also though this may have been his brother, but there was another James Hill died/killed on the same day and at the time I couldn't find anything to prove/disprove anything.

I had a wee look on Scotlands People and there was only a service return for the James Hill of the R.F.A. which suggests (but proves nothing) that the man in the Inniskilling Fusiliers wasn't born in Scotland. Also James is listed as 36 on the war return, a close match to the family headstone.

So I think it's safe to say 25598 Gunner James Hill of the R.F.A. is his brother. He was killed in action aged 36.

Derek.

"Private Francis Morrison Grant, 1st Gordon Highlanders, who resided in Larbert, has been killed.

He adds that he was killed instantaneously on 23rd inst. by a rifle bullet "while in the execution of his duties under my command in a detached portion of the trenches. Your son was a man far and away above the usual run of soldiers, whose character, example, and deportment made him the friend of and an object lesson to all of us of whatever rank who had the good fortune to know him." Private Grant, who was about 24 years of age, was formerly employed as a fitter with Messrs Dobbie, Forbes and Co., Ironfounders, Larbert.
