Three men whose graves could not be marked by headstones are commemorated by name on the screen wall in the First World War plot. The majority of the 82 First World War graves are in a special plot on the south-eastern boundary. The names of those buried in the plot are recorded on a screen wall. The other burials are scattered throughout the cemetery.
