The space underneath the dedication is divided into four panels by flat pillars which are arched at the top. These panels bear the names in a single column on each of the dead from 1914-18, handwritten in gold paint using Roman capitals throughout, and at the top of each panel is a gold-painted cross with a red poppy at centre. At the bottom, the last two names in every column are from 1939-45.
