Taken from the CWGC Site;
 
 
Cemetery: GRANGEGORMAN MILITARY CEMETERY
Country: Ireland, Republic of
Locality: County Dublin
Historical Information: The cemetery was opened in 1876 and was used for the burial of British service personnel and their near relatives. It contains war graves from both world wars. Some of the graves were re-located to this site at a later date (nine from King George V Hospital grounds, two from Trinity College grounds, three from Portobello (Barracks) Cemetery, two from Drogheda (Little Calvary) Cemetery and one from Oranmore Old Graveyard). The "Leinster" graves are in several trenches in the different denominational plots. A Screen Wall Memorial of a simple design standing nearly two metres high and fifteen metres long has been built of Irish limestone to commemorate the names of those war casualties whose graves lie elsewhere in Ireland and can no longer be maintained. Arranged before this memorial are the headstones of the war dead buried in Cork Military Cemetery but now commemorated here. There are now 613 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war, 2 of which are unidentified, and 12 of the 1939-1945 war, 1 of which is unidentified, commemorated here.
No. of Identified Casualties: 623

No problems AIdan,
 
Just a point the dates dont seem to agree, according to the dates you gave from his Medal Index Card he landed on 9 July 1915, but his date of death is shown as 19/3/1915 by the CWGC, the Irish War Memorial rcords show the same date. So perhaps they are two different soldiers.

i didnt notice the DOD and landing date being so way out. it is now obvious that it is two different soldiers. my guess now would be that they are brothers that joined up at the same time , and that would explain their numbers being so close and my confusion. thanks for pointing out my mistakes.

Not a bother, if I had a penny (sorry Cent) for every time I got dates mixed up during my research I would not be praying to win the Euromillions.
