From the 13th of November 1936 Scotsman, it is stated the factory was to close. They were sanitary engineers, nothing to do with plates and bowls.

"Sanitary Engineers" - toilet seats then?

There has been some chat about this on another thread and some names identified. We can start adding them here too once they are confirmed.

Thanks to David Weir, the Heritage Officer at Paisley Central Library who looked through the Paisley WW1 Roll of Honour and came up with a list of names from "Paisley's Fallen" with a Doulton's connection. This helps identify the men listed and some of those missing.

It doesn't list two of the names visible on the memorial so there is no guarantee these are the missing names from the memorial but it is a huge step forwards towards identifying all the Doulton's men lost in the First World War so a big thank you to David Weir and his team at paisley Library for their help.

William Bauchop enlisted at the age of 51 in the Corps of the School of Musketry in September 1914. He was discharged due to ill health, unfit for future service in December 1915.

He had previously served from 1884 to 1910, with no overseas service, in the Scottish Rifles, and gave his occupation as patternmaker.

His papers (held on Ancestry) clearly state his illness was not caused by military service, so there is no case for putting this forward as a non-comm.

W Baxter, R.E.

There are three W Baxters listed in the Royal Engineers on the CWGC. One is a man from England, so probably not him. These are the other two:

BAXTER, W J

Rank: Sapper
Service No: 147795
Date of Death: 31/07/1917
Regiment/Service: Royal Engineers, 255th Tunnelling Coy.
Panel Reference Panel 9.
Memorial YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL

(SDGW seems to link this man to Wales)

BAXTER, W T

Rank: Private
Service No: 63421
Date of Death: 03/07/1916
Regiment/Service: Royal Engineers, 90th Field Coy.
Grave Reference II. G. 7.
Cemetery QUARRY CEMETERY, MONTAUBAN

(SDGW has this man born, residing and enlisted in Kent)

Neither are listed on the SNWM. It's possible this man is another, like Bauchop, who was discharged and died later. I'll need to do some further research to be sure.

John Campbell

We have a note his mother lived at 4 Barclay Street, and that he was a craneman at Doulton's. "Paisley's Fallen in the War" lists that he joined the Argylls in January 1915 and was killed February 28th, 1916.

The closest match on CWGC is this man:
