This is a large and impressive memorial located on Schoolhill next to the Art Gallery.
I am guessing (on my limited knowledge of numerals) the Roman Numerals are reffering to each War. The first on the left and the second on the right.

Fantastic looking monument. I take it the names aren't on the memorial itself but in the books?
