    The title should read "Warneford Memorial unveiled". (the name also needs changing in body text and tags.

    The memorial remembers Reginald Warneford VC, who brought down the German airship LZ37 in 1915.

    The unveiling seen here took place on 11 July 1916.

    "Location of events unknown" - location is the West Brompton cemetery.

    "Opens with man in top hat, probably Lord Derby" - yes, that's Lord Derby.
