There is no information on the CWGC website in relation to an Arthur Denmead or similar.
Apart from Craster War Memorial, other limited sources of information are available via Ancestry.co.uk, specifically the UK, Royal Naval Division Index, 1914-1919 & UK, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Service Records Index, 1903-1922.
Even these can be difficult to find & researchers may need to input the surname only with the broadest date of death range in order to trawl through over one hundred listings! However, they can also be accessed via links with 1911 Census data.
