There is some discrepancy between the names given in the newspaper cutting reporting the unveiling of this memorial and the names on the memorial.  For example James Jenny in the Barnsley Chronicle is Jas Kenny on the memorial and H. Wood in the Chronicle is A. Wood on the memorial.  J.A. Humphrey on the memorial was listed as J.A. Humphreys in the Chronicle.

There is a small metal plaque attached to the front face of the base of the memorial commemorating the fallen of the Second World War, but it contains no names.
