There may be a couple more. I haven't visited the churchyard but a survey carried out in the late 1970s identified:

James Barmeal, the son of Alexander Barmeal, "Also their son James who was killed in action at Ypres 3rd July 1917 aged 39years". A quick check of the CWGC throws up no Barmeals, so I really do need to visit to check that it has been transcribed properly.

Robert McCormick, the son of Alexander McCormick and Mary Knight, "Also his son Robert who fell in action at Tampoux, Arras, 16th/20th May 1916 aged 34 years. Again I can't see him on the CWGC site.

Thanks Paul, I think you're right. I've just located Barmeal farm, not too far from Monreith. I guess an appropriate comma was not used!

Name: MCCORMICK, ROBERT
Initials: R
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lance Corporal
Regiment/Service: Seaforth Highlanders, 1st/6th Bn
Date of Death: Between 12 May 1917 and 16 May 1917
Service Number: S/7440
Grave Reference: III. G. 8
Cemetery: Brown’s Copse Cemetery, Rouex

Note, however, the discrepancy over the year of death. SNWM identifies Lance Corporal McCormick as coming from "Glassestown" so I think this must be the man.

From CWGC:
Brown's Copse Cemetery is about one kilometre north-west of Roeux on the eastern outskirts of the neighbouring village of Fampoux.
The gravestone has Tampoux, Arras.- close enough??

CWGC also has:
Roeux was built over a system of caves which helped to make its capture in 1917 exceptionally difficult. It was attacked by the 9th (Scottish) Division without success on 12 April. The chemical works close to the railway station were taken by the 51st (Highland) Division on 22 April and after incessant fighting, the village was cleared by the same Division on 14 May. The chemical works were lost again and retaken on 16 May.

The 1/6th Seaforths were in 152nd Brigade of the 51st (Highland) Division.

Looks to be the right man, Ken. Probably errors by the mason carving the stone.
