They were part of the 31st Brigade, 10th (Irish) Division until Theodore was discharged from the Army on the 09/06/1916 through sickness. He died at home. I personally laid a Poppy at Theodore's Grave on the 27/03/2022 (Mother's Day). A huge thanks to Morag White who in 2012 arranged for Theodore's name on the Memorial and the erection of his CWGC headstone in Old Monkland Cemetery. Fantastic work by Morag. See photos for Theodore's Medal Index Card, his Pension Record, his Headstone Report, his CWGC Grave Registration, another 2 photos of his Grave in Old Monkland Cemetery, his Army Registers of Soldiers Effects, his Service Medal and Award Rolls x 2, Theodore's grave inscription reads "GRACE GRACIE 11/5/1920 MARY GRACIE 18/8/1926 ANNIE CAHILL 10/11/1967 RIP".

Theodore Byrne Gracie also has his name inscribed, although wrongly spelt by the Council, on the Coatbridge War Memorial. His name was added on the plinth. I was instrumental on having his name added there and also arranged for the Commonwealth War Grave Commission gravestone to be erected in Old Monkland Cemetery.
