Names for the memorial were gathered throughout the war by the Masefields, with several appeals for information appearing in the local newspapers. The names were first used for a printed Roll of Honour and then for the first Cheadle War Memorial. When the memorial was replaced by the metal plaques, a second appeal for names was made.
Despite the committee’s best efforts to list all the men from the Cheadle area, at least three names were missed. Frederick Adams was added to the memorial in the 1980s, but two men remain unlisted, despite being buried in Cheadle’s cemetery with Military headstones.
