Those who had served during the War continued to die from its effects long after, some even continued to serve and died in service. Among those listed on the Memorial whose deaths occurred after 1918 were:

He was the son of John and Lettice of 7 Green Street. He had been a member of the Philadelphia Chapel. He is buried in Mons(Bergen) Communal Cemetery Belgium.

Private T.J Evans (182177) died after the end of the war on 14 August 1920 while serving with the 6th Light Armoured Battery in Iraq. Previously he had been a Private in the 14th Welsh regiment until 16 November 1918. He was the son of William and Jane of 8 Graig Terrace. He is buried in Baghdad North Gate Cemetery.

Stoker (First Class) George Gambold had served on HMS Princess Royal /Columbine before he died on 18 January 1921 at 25 years age. He was the son of James and Anne Maria of Maesygwernen Road, Pantlasse. Prior to enlisting he was employed as an Errand Boy.
