The City of Salford Air Raid Wardens and Fire Guard Corps memorial.
One name I could make out:
Name: STEELE, JAMES Initials: J Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Civilian Regiment/Service: Civilian War Dead Age: 49 Date of Death: 23/12/1940 Additional information: Senior Air Raid Warden; of 25 Bigland Street. Husband of Annie Steele. Died at Bigland Street, Everard Street. Casualty Type: Civilian War Dead Reporting Authority: SALFORD, COUNTY BOROUGH
Don't remember there being any notation of the location on the photo, but presumably would have originally been in a 'Civic' building? Never found any reference to it anywhere else so far. Think I have a copy of the photo above at home, so I'll see if I can get the other names. If not, it'll be a trip to the Local History Library sometime.

Still don't know where this memorial is sited. It may be in the old town hall in Bexley Square?
Here are the names.
