My friend is hoping that through this forum that we may be able to find out who laid the flowers or who ordered the flowers to be laid there - 90 years to the date of death.

Can anyone help?

I was trying to find where Dunard was in Stirling but I can't find any references to it on the internet.

I tried Dunard in Geoff's Search Engine and although it came up with 15 names it only came up with Lt Marshall for Dunard, Stirling.
