The other son, Alexander Frew, is (I think) this man:

FREW, ALEXANDER
Rank:Chief Engineer Officer
Date of Death:23/11/1942
Age:55
Regiment/Service:Merchant Navy
S.S. Tilawa (Glasgow)
Panel ReferencePanel 108.
MemorialTOWER HILL MEMORIAL
Additional Information:
Son of Alexander and Margaret Frew; husband of Charlotte Frew, of Paisley, Renfrewshire.

His mother's name is different (Jane on gravestone) and SNWM has him born in Barrhead but the stone reads "late of B.I." which was the abbreviation for the British India Steam Navigation Company.

From http://sstilawa.com/storys.htm

on the 23rd November 1942 around midnight, British India Steam Navigation Co's (BI) 10006 ton cargo passenger liner, TILAWA, which was positioned 07 36' north 06/008' east, about 500 miles east of the coast of Socorta, sunk into the cold Indian Ocean minutes after it was attacked by the Japanese submarine JP 1-29.
