Hamilton Lindsay was the son of James and Mary Jane Lindsay. The names Hamilton and William Lindsay are recorded on the Waimate Knox Church Sunday School roll of honour, which was unveiled on 26 March 1916. Late in 1915 the "time had come to set down in order the names of ex-pupils of the Waimate Presbyterian Sunday School who had become soldiers of the Empire in the great fight for home and justice." Hamilton's brother William Alexander Lindsay also served in World War I, and their older brother Andrew John Lindsay was killed in action in 1916 in France.
