The following has been submitted by NEWMP, who has compared the names on the memorial with those on a. The Order of Service for the unveiling of Memorial 1923 Gibson, C.R. is Gibson, C.E. in Programme Hope, I.W. is Hope, J.W. in Programme Johnson, F.C. is Johnson F.G. in Programme McGarth, P. is McGrath, P. in Programme Slagar, H. is Seagar, H. in Programme Stoddart, N. is Stoddart, H. in Programme Welford, T. is Welford, T.H.B. in Programme Wright, R. is Wright, P. in Programme b. The Service of Rededication in 1958. There is no W. Anderson on the Dedication list at all. Bradley, K. reads Broadley, K. (CWG agrees with Broadley) Coombes, S.T. reads Coombe, S.T. (CWG agrees with Coombe) Hannant, N. reads Hannant, N.J. (CWG agrees with Hannant, N.J.) McCullough, J. reads McCullouch, J. (Cannot find anyone definite in CWG with either spelling). Tarn, W. reads Tarn, T.W. (CWG agrees with Tarn, T.W.) The Korean death is not mentioned. Allen, F. is not in 1923 or 1958 Programme Harris, J.D. is not in 1923 or 1958 Programme 4 names are listed as being added from 1914-1918: Croft, R., Harrison, T.W. , Mulligan, D., Thorpe, J., and are listed in the correct places alphabetically -so from this it would seem to me that when the cross was moved from Ainsley Terrace to the Civic Centre the name panels were replaced and new ones put up and these mistakes occurred then.
