You can find a complete list of the names at The Coningsby Town Council website. Just click on "War Memorial".

Eric WALTERS also tells us:

The Memorial was dedicated in September 1921. The religious service was preceded by the singing of the hymn Let Saints on Earth and the flag which covered it was released by Captain Hotchin MP who said it would serve as a reminder to future children of the willing response of their fathers and grandfathers to do what was necessary to save their country. The memorial takes the form of a broken Aberdeen red granite column on a Portland stone base.
