This PDF gives some biographical details of those listed on four memorials in St Andrew's House in Edinburgh.
http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/0040/00408215.pdf
There is a fifth memorial for WW2.
The others are for The Scottish Education Board (24 names), The Local Government Board for Scotland (4 names), The Scottish Insurance Commission (36 names) and for The Board of Agriculture (22 names)
Confusingly the text refers to 79 names and the Roll of the Fallen (an alphabetical listing) has 79. (The total of the above is 86)

As far as I can see none of these memorials are on the Project.
If I'm correct could a MOD add them to "Other Memorials" with "Photos needed" please?

One of the entries on the Scottish Insurance Commission Memorial has

David Alexander Anderson is commemorated on the Seafield Oilworks memorial in West Lothian because of his fatherís connection with the company.

Is this another memorial to add to the Lothians list?
