Interesting to see that the WW1 plaque is a list of those served, while the WW2 is a list of those died. Also, according to the booklet, far more died during WW1 than WW2.

I think that the WW1 plaque is a list of those who lost their lives.
I did a (very) random check and each name is on CWGC.
Note also that the booklet is dated March 1915 so is a list of those who enlisted by then.
Where there are notes they give dates in 1914 and 1915.

One "odd" one is that Stephen Cocks Welch is WELSH, Private S. C., S.R. in the Roll but is WELCH, Stephen C. on the plaque.

WELCH, STEPHEN COCKS.
Rank:Second Lieutenant
Date of Death:29/04/1916
Age:20
