I think the Robert Crainey listed last on the inscription is the Sergt. Robert Crainey of the A. & S. H.

If so, he was the son of Edward Crainey and it looks like he was married twice. Firstly to Doris May Ives and secondly to Sarah.

Hi Robert,

I'm due a wee trip to Old Monkland in the near future, so I'll try and find his grave when I'm there.

If there isn't a stone, do you want a photo of where the grave is and the surroundings?
