The name of Hugh Galbraith - who was a member of Great James' Street Presbyterian Church - was read out during a memorial service held in St Columb's (Church of Ireland) Cathedral, Londonderry, on Sunday, August 1, 1915, to commemorate the officers and men of the city of Derry, who had died during the first year of the Great War. His name was again read aloud during a special memorial service held in First Derry Presbyterian Church, on Friday, August 4, 1916, to pay tribute to the Presbyterian soldiers of the city of Londonderry, who had died during the first two years of the First World War.

Hugh Galbraith's brother, Frank Galbraith, went down in the H.M.S. Viknor, when that vessel was torpedoed in January 1915.
