Unfortunately On-line Scottish Births only come up to 1906 (from 1553), to minmise the possibility of wholesale identity theft.
As marriages are typically at about age 25, the on-line limit is 1931; and deaths are 1956.
A visit to New Register House in Edinburgh or employing a genealogist or SKS on a visit can get all categories virtually up-to-date over there; but not on-line.
This leads to such things as I could access the Death Record for a child in 1911; but could not see her Birth Record of 18 months earlier.
I have had a look in the BT Phone Directory covering Hamilton; but none of the original names show up - not unexpectedly.
There is this Club in the area which might be able to help you-
