James Crampshee is listed. His name appears on the Upper Cabrach Memorial.

You need to be aware there have been in the past two areas in the Cabrach from religous and political directions. At one time part of the Cabrach was in Banffshire, the remainder in Aberdeenshire. If you check the website link to the memorials page you will see them still, Upper and Lower Cabrach. There is only one kirkyard.

Good spot, Jas.

Name: ROSS, THOMAS
Initials: T
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Guardsman
Regiment/Service: Scots Guards
Unit Text: 2nd Bn.
Age: 24
Date of Death: 16/06/1941

Additional information: Son of Thomas Alexander Ross and Ada Ross, of Lower Cabrach, Aberdeenshire.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: 15. H. 2.

Note: The Christian name is different; however, I think that this is one of the Ross family. I suspect that both father and son were Thomas Alexander - Dad was Thomas; son was Alexander - at least at home.
