Rev. J.E. Cattral Q.M.S. R.A.M.C.

No mention of his reverend status in his military rank. Not listed on the St Giles memorial to ministers as he's not Scottish, hence why absent from SNWM also. I wonder what the connection to Holytown is?

Thanks for that Ken.

I'd never heard of the Surman index before, handy.
Yeah I think the St Giles is CoS and a few splinter branches of it only.

Cheers,
Derek.
