I was passing the church recently and took the opportunity to take a closer look at the memorial. There is one small area where a few names are visible. These names are not included on the original list printed in the church's parish magazine.
I can read: H Ross J Roo?? Alan Tatham
So there were additions.
Confirmation of additional names:
Ron Fletcher J Rocke H Ross F Timperley H Warren Alan Tatham F N Waterhouse
