Pender does not seem to be listed on any Wigtownshire Memorial but his brother is buried in Whithorn. (page 4) of
http://scottishwargraves.phpbbweb.com/scottishwargraves-ftopic695-0-asc-45.html

He is listed on the Kilmorich Parish Memorial in Cairndow, Argyll.
(this memorial's title on the Forum needs sorting)
