Thank you Anne - that would certainly seem to be a good match for T.Jox. It is a shame that it appears that some errors were made on the names of this window: H.McAnley & T.Jox being the two obvious ones.

With such a small number of names you would have thought it would be possible to check the names were correct before going into final production, but then I suppose a company who produced this type of memorial were probably very busy in the years following WW1.

Thanks for your help.

Bunty, thanks for your addition. The use of first initials only on this memorial makes it more difficult to identify the men.

D McKendry
Think this is Daniel McKendry KIA 14/10/197 he enlisted in Neilston.
A Hay
Two possibilities Archibald Hay who was born in Neilston and killed 4/7/1916. The other is Archibald Hay who was born, enlisted and resided in Neilston and killed 16/11/1917.
James Hay was born in Neilston and killed 23/4/1917
