Please note that the names that have been transcribed here were taken from photographs of the plates and as such they are not always as clear as would be liked so it is highly possible that some mistakes have been made during the transcription. While researching more names were found than are transcribed from the memorial but having now divided them by surname rather than unit it is difficult to see if some have been missed.
