I don't know. The Catherine Cameron listed on the CWGC database was killed in a German air-raid on Greenock on 7th May 1941.

You can read the local Firemaster's report of the raid from 1941 here:

The Blair Atholl Catherine Cameron is listed as Women's Land Army and is a member of the parish.

When I was doing a bit of casual research for cemeteries in relation to the sister site (SWGF) I found this!;

Surname ROSS
Firstname Elizabeth Campbell
Service number 893494
Date of death 15/02/1943
Decoration
Place of birth Blair Atholl
Other
SNWM roll ROYAL AIR FORCE and DOMINION AIR FORCES
Rank L A C W
Theatre of death W.A.A.F. C.C.

Name: ROSS, ELIZABETH
Initials: E C
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Leading Aircraftwoman
Regiment/Service: Women's Auxiliary Air Force
Age: 48

Elizabeth is not on the public WM or included in the parish church WW2 book. What a shame. (mind you I didn't get into the CoE on the day I was up - possibility)
