Gretna Disaster - List of those involved

The disaster was reported widely in the Edinburgh newspapers. Lists of casualties were published, along with photographs, obituaries, death notices, and many stories about the accident. As the weeks went by, the amount of space devoted to the accident naturally diminished, but photographs of men who had been killed were still appearing in the middle of June 1915.

I went through one daily newspaper and extracted as much information about the people involved as I could find. For those who were killed, very often their address, occupation, age, next of kin, and a photograph were given, whilst those who were injured or who escaped without a scratch are just mentioned by name only. Sometimes a person is mentioned only once, whilst in other cases a story may appear for several consecutive days.

Newspaper accounts can be rather inaccurate, and in compiling this list of over 580 names, I have found many errors. Since the list of men who boarded the train was destroyed in the crash, the Army compiled the names from a variety of sources, and many of the mistakes reflect the way that the names were pronounced, rather than written. For instance, a man called Lawrie also appears as Lowrie or Laurie, and M'Diarmid or M'Dermaid. All the soldiers had Regimental Numbers which were introduced to stop such confusion, but without a proper list to work from, even these got confused - one man is reported variously as having a number of 898, 889 or 899. Addresses are also subject to errors, by far the main error is describing the street as being in Edinburgh rather than in Leith, although sometimes it can be the other way round. In most cases, names beginning with Mac and Mc were reported as M', and in the following list I have indexed all these names in this way, eg M'Donald, rather than McDonald or MacDonald.

As well as not knowing exactly who was on the train, another problem for the authorities was the identification of the bodies. The train carried gas cylinders underneath for carriage lighting, and these exploded in the crash, with the result that there are many horrific stories of men being trapped in the burning wreckage. So fierce was the fire that the remains of many soldiers could not be properly identified, and men were still unaccounted for more than a week after the disaster. When the coffins arrived back in Edinburgh before the funeral, relatives were not allowed to open them.

The vast majority of soldiers involved were from the 1/7th Battalion of the Royal Scots, based at Dalmeny Street in Leith. Most of these men came from Leith, Musselburgh or Edinburgh, with a small number from West Lothian. There was also a detachment of men from the Highland Light Infantry travelling on the train, and some of the casualties are therefore from the south west of Scotland rather than from the Edinburgh area.

Listed in the table below are the names of everyone I found, together with some identifying details, like their Regimental Number, or address. The names of most of those who were killed are inscribed upon the name panels at Rosebank Cemetery, and if you click on one of these names, you will be taken to a photograph of that panel. If you are interested in anyone mentioned, please e-mail me and I will send you the content of each article I have recorded.

I receive several enquiries a month about the people listed in the table below. Very often the same name crops up again and again, and in the hope of putting families in touch with each other, I have made a note in the last column when I receive an enquiry about that person, giving the date of the enquiry, the initial(s) of the enquirer, and the relationship (if any) to the person involved in the disaster. If you wish to make contact with the enquirer, please write to me and I will write to them and send them your e-mail address. It is then up to them to contact you directly, if they wish. I will not pass on e-mail addresses without permission.
