Inscription

{On a central panel with a cross:}
Their name liveth for evermore.
{Surrounded by 34 panels containing 111 names. See Subjects commemorated}.

The names commemorate those who are buried in the cemetery without individual headstones, so some have accompanying touching epithets which we have also transcribed.

SE4, Brockley Grove, Brockley and Ladywell Cemetry

About these cemeteries and their war graves, Wikipedia has this: "Until 1948, the two cemeteries were completely separate, being divided by a wall. Ladywell Cemetery, which was previously known as Lewisham Cemetery, stands to the east of the wall and Brockley Cemetery, formerly Deptford Cemetery, lies to the west. ... Both cemeteries contain war graves of Commonwealth service personnel registered and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Brockley Cemetery contains 195 war graves, 175 from World War I and 19 from World War II. The majority of the graves lie in a War Plot. On the cemetery's west side, a Screen Wall memorial lists those whose graves could not be marked by headstones. Ladywell Cemetery contains 226 war graves from World War I and 18 from World War II. A War Graves plot contains 100 graves, the names of those buried there being listed on a Screen War Memorial in Plot D, as well as those buried elsewhere in the cemetery whose graves could not be marked by headstones. The CWGC also maintain a Commemorative Plot, in Plot B, on which 46 headstones have been erected."

We belive this plot is Ladywell Cemetery's war graves plot D.
