Doing research on soldiers killed in World War I, I have had access to The Naval and Military Press publication Soldiers Died In The Great War. This comprises 81 volumes of casualties on a fully searchable dvd. To date I have found 207 enlisted men (not officers) with links to Ardrossan – these are men who were born in, lived in or enlisted in Ardrossan. There are 133 with links to Saltcoats; 134 to Stevenston; 134 to Kilwinning; and 50 to West Kilbride. I have put these in table form including rank, service number, date of death and Theatre of War. Some men appear on more than one list. If anyone is doing family research in the build up to the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of the war, I will be happy to check names out against these lists.
