This man is mentioned on a gravestone in Currie but is not on any of the memorials in the district. His parents lived in Millerhill, Edinburgh but he is not on Danderhall and Newton Memorial. Should he be on Dunbar?

HiKen,
Yes I know he is on CWGC so not a non comm as such but I was asking should he be on the Dunbar Memorial as that was his birth place. He is not on Danderhall ( Millerhill) where his parents were when he died.

Aye
