No records could be found for deceased veterans from this area with the following names: J Brown, D Galton, N D Harrison, E N Jennings, F R Love, A R McFarlane, J McIntosh, A W Noakes, C J Robson, A W Ryan, S O Simpson, C E Taylor, V J Trunk, B H Woodhead, W L Shepherd. Their status codes have been given as KIA, as that is what is indicated by the memorial.

D Galton may be Daniel Galton DOD/DPOW, N D Harrison may be Norman Douglas Harrison Acc Kd, E N Jennings may be may be Norman Edward Jennings Acc Kd, F R Love may be Frederick Raymond Love KIA, A R McFarlane may be Allen Roderick McFarlane KIA, J McIntosh may be John McIntosh who was killed while serving in the RAF, A W Noakes may be Arthur William Noakes DOD/DPOW, C J Robson may be Charles John Robson KIA, A W Ryan may be Albert William Ryan who may have died as a POW, S O Simpson may be Stanley Oliver Simpson KIA, C E Taylor may be Colin Ernest Taylor KIA, V J Trunk may be Victor Joseph Trunk KIA, B H Woodhead may be Benjamin Woodhead MIA, and W L Shepherd may be Walter Lewis Shepherd DOW/POW. In addition A J Rutherford could be either Albert John Rutherford DOD/POW, or Allan James Rutherford Acc Kd. - both of Lismore. The status code for this veteran has also been given as KIA.

The cause of death for veteran W D Hatt is not clear, while the Australian War Memorial gives the cause of death for H C Youngberry as unknown - he was a POW. These two veterans have thus been given the status In Memoriam.

All other status codes are taken from information contained in the Australian War Memorial Roll of Honour, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database, the World War 2 Nominal Roll and the National Archives of Australia. Those veterans given the status of DOD/POW may have died as prisoners of war. L B Barnes may have been accidentally killed, as his death occurred in Australia. The Australian War Memorial awards a DFM to L J Gilbert and C W Woods.
