There are a few men on this memorial listed as 'the only' on CWGC and a few others not listed at all - well, I can't find them if they are. Two which immediately spring to mind are James Aigo and James Ving - no Aigos or Vings listed at all, even after trying all the surname variants I could think of.

It's been fun and games trying to figure out who's who - there are so many of them without an obvious connection to Camelon and to be included in the new War Memorial, that's the criteria. I don't know if ranks etc., are to be included on the memorial or it's just going to be names.

OK Smarty Pants - I never thought of GING!!! Rolling Eyes

Thanks Mark!

P.S. I wonder if he had red hair?

P.P.S. Should I leave him as Ving or change it to Ging? No wonder I couldn't find him Laughing

Nae bother Anne,

I found a James Igoe on SNWM - born in Ireland but obviously a Scottish connection somewhere. Do you think it could be him? Igoe and Aigo sound the same to me when I pronounce them.

Right enough Paul - they do sound the same when you say them. Now that we know there's at least one glaring error on the memorial - that might explain why I can't find a lot of them.

I know in Denny, there's a few Iggo families - probably an offshoot of some description too.

L/Cpl John Eyeval on the Brora war memorial is listed on CWGC and SDGW as Ivel so Paul's Igoe / Aigo suggestion could be right.

Date of Death: 11/11/1914

The Scotsman - Tuesday, 4th January 1921, page 5

    WAR MEMORIALS

    CAMELON (FALKIRK.) In memory of the men belonging to the quoad sacra parish of Camelon who made the supreme sacrifice in the war, a beautifully designed scroll memorial, framed in oak, and bearing the names of 263 fallen soldiers, was unveiled by Col. Robertson, V.C., O.B.E., at an impressive service held in Camelon Parish Church. An interesting feature was the gift of the children of the Sunday School of two handsome gilt vases, together with a small endowment for the provision of flowers. The dedication ceremony was performed by the Rev. R. A. Agnew, minister of the church.

23.12.1915 The War Office having presumed the death of the ex constable who rejoined the 1st Battalion, Scots Guards at the outbreak of the war, and who was posted as missing on 11.11.1914, the Watch Committee then ordered that moneys granted in the ex constables favour, amounting to the sum of 9.12s.0d be paid to the father.

The following is the information I have located with regards to Edward Traynor named on the memorial plaque.

TRAYNOR, Edward Private 18146 1st Bn Royal Dublin Fusiliers
Born: Edenderry, Offaly (Kings County) Resided: Camelon, Falkirk Enlisted: Stenhousemuir, Falkirk.
Age: 28 Date of Death: 30/06/1915 Cause: Killed in action.

I note two other Traynor's named on the plaque, can anyone tell me if they were related and if so in what way.

James Aigo, A. and S.H., was killed in France on 29th January.Prior to enlisting in August 1916, Lance-Corpl. Aigo, who was 36 years of age, was a fitter in Port Downie Foundry. He went to France in December of last year.From the Falkirk Herald 23/2/1918.
