Lest we forget.

{The list of 213 names is arranged in alphabetical sequence across 8 columns,. See Subjects commemorated for the names.} 

The list of names contains two pairs of duplicates: C. Chipperfield and H. Smith; neither is a transcription error on our part. These could be unrelated but sadly it is possible that a son, named after his father, could be killed in the same war as his father.
