I'm slowly working my way through the names on the memorial but tracking birth details is a bit problematic.
An entry on rootschat.com explains
:

"The Town of Galashiels was split between two Parishes, the Parish of Galashiels and the Parish of Melrose. The Parish of Galashiels has always been in Selkirkshire. Melrose however was in Roxburghshire, so you could live in the town of Galashiels but be in the county of Roxburghshire.

From the point of view of census and civil registration it stayed this way until 1856, at this time a new registration district called Ladhope was formed out of part of Melrose Parish, this registration district included the Roxburghshire part of Galashiels town and had already existed as an ecclesiastical devision of Melrose Parish. This new Ladhope registration district stayed in Roxburghshire until the next change at the beginning of 1873.

In 1873 the entire registration district of Ladhope was moved into Selkirkshire and now the town of Galashiels was all in the same county but still split between two registration districts - Galashiels and Ladhope.

In 1892 Ladhope registration district was split, the large rural part was renamed Langshaw and returned to Roxburghshire. The other part which contained half the town of Galashiels was merged with Galashiels registration district and remained in Selkirkshire."


However ScotlandsPeople lists all Ladhope registrations under Roxburghshire!
Where appropriate I have listed births as Galashiels or as Galashiels. [Ladhope]
