Stuart - these names seem to be the same as on he Bonham Parish War Memorial
see http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=2278

So is this a civic memorial ? (and who is Maggie?????)

Maggieknockater is the name of the hamlet the old churchyard is in, about 4 miles from Dufftown. Apparently (according to Wikipedia) it has nothing to do with a 'Maggie' but means either 'field of the fuller' or 'plain of the hilly ridge'
