Farnley, War Memorial transcription:

Names taken from Farnley Cenotaph, other details were obtained from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission web-site, where additional information is available. Where only a name is shown with no details, it is because it was not possible to be certain which was the correct casualty from the list of names held on the site."
