Aspects noted whilst transcribing the above names are that only one Christian name is given, that of the second Smith J and that the name Hardy W E has been riveted on via a separate plate; maybe to cover a casting error. Care will be needed to make sure that the plate does not fall off as the rivets corrode over the years.

It is now known that there are mistakes in the memorial itself. For example LARKAM, W. T. should be LARKHAM, W. T. and FREESTON should be FREESTONE.
