Well done Anne Very Happy
For a couple of guys at random (Freer 18/3/1915 and Jones 2/10/1918) it looks like they are listed in date of death order.

Barr & Stroud Limited was a pioneering Scottish optical engineering firm, initially formed in 1913 in Anniesland, Glasgow. They played a leading role in the development of modern optics, including rangefinders, for the Royal Navy and for other branches of British Armed Forces during the 20th century. There was a non-military arm of the company which made medical equipment, like photo-coagulators and electronic filters, some of which were used by the BBC. The company and its intellectual property passed through Pilkington group to Thales Optronics. The factory is now located on the south side of Glasgow at:- 1 Linthouse Road, Glasgow G51 4 BZ.
The memorial is located in the factory grounds.
Many thanks to Alan Rae, Communications Manager, Thales for providing the photographs. The photographs were taken during the Remembrance Service November 2014.
