ADAM MACAULAY who died as the result of the Great War.

Insufficient information to identify.

The names of the main/front panel of the stone are:
Andrew Gilchrist (husband of Janet Walker who was drowned while skating on Banton Loch on New Year’s Day 1891 aged 30 years.)
and Jenny Gilchrist (his daughter)aged 5 years.


I have tried searching under variants of Macaulay and Gilchrist but can't find anything under either.
