There is a commemorative Screen Wall in each bearing the names of those buried there and there is also a Special Memorial naming 7 casualties whose graves lay unmarked in other parts in the cemetery. The 1939-1945 War burials total 99, these graves, too, are in many different parts of the cemetery.
