One of the former pupils listed here was a former Church of Scotland minister who is listed on a few other war memorials:

St George's Church, Edinburgh, Largs War Memorial, Bruntsfield Links Golf Club and the Church of Scotland Ministers War Memorial in St Giles in Edinburgh

If he had connections to Largs and Hamilton he may also be listed on churches in those towns?
