2.   The Elms War Memorial is currently located within St Paul's Church but is not on public display.

3.   The Holy Trinity School Roll of Honour has not yet been located but details of those named upon it have been taken from a photo of the memorial which was published in the "Cheltenham Chronicle and Gloucestershire Graphic" in November 1919.

4.   The Order of Oddfellows Roll of Honour is believed to be located at The Register Office in Sheep Street, Cirencester.   The names of those commemorated on the memorial were taken from a photo and article in the "Cheltenham Chronicle and Gloucestershire Graphic"  published on Saturday 24th July 1920.
