The following eight men are 'new discoveries' I just happened to come across while looking for something completely unrelated . . . . . in saying that, considering the size of Camelon Cemetery, there's probably lots more I haven't found . . . . yet! Smile

The military cemetery had been started by the Germans and 54 of their graves (only three of them identified) remain in the south end. Practically all of the 88 First World War Commonwealth burials and commemorations in the cemetery date from October 1918. 31 of the burials are unidentified but special memorials commemorate five casualties known to be buried among them.

Ldg. A/C'man Andrew Twaddle Cairns' parents are listed as William and Jessie Cochrane.

His date of death is also outwith the normal 'scope' for inclusion on CWGC.



This is CWGC headstone. The date of death is well before the cut off date for WW2 - 31st December 1947.

Quote:
Name: CUNNINGHAM, THOMAS WALLACE
Initials: T W
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Aircraftman 2nd Class
Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
Date of Death: 15/03/1944
Service No: 1572477
Additional information: Son of William and Isabella Love Cunningham; husband of Jessie Turner Cunningham, of Falkirk.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Sec. 6. Grave 343.
Cemetery: FALKIRK CEMETERY

Note that the Maiden Names of both Aircraftman Thomas Wallace Cunningham's mother and wife do not match the information on CWGG.

His mother's Maiden Name according to the stone was Sneddon and his wife's Maiden Name was Farrell


The CWGC details are correct. Love and Turner are not maiden surnames, they are middle names

LAC Cairns died of TB (2years & 2 months) at Hairmyers Hospital, East Kilbride. His father (deceased) was also Andrew Twaddle Cairns, a Cooper. His mother is shown as Jessie Cairns, now Cochrane, m.s. Stewart of 20 Randyford St. Falkirk. She registered the death.

(had a couple of credits left - Ken)
