Can you help identify two of these people?

This photo was taken at the 75th anniversary of the Mary Stanford lifeboat disaster in November 2003. Most of the group is known, but help with two unknowns would be appreciated. Reply in the comment below, thank-you.

From left: Tom Pope, unknown A, Eva Coleman (Southerden), Robert (Bob) Southerden, Fred Southerden, unknown B, Audrey Hill (Southerden). In the wheelchair: Elsie Haffenden (Downey).

On this 92nd Anniversary, remembering the Mary Stanford crew members and their families. (Dean Robert from Canterbury Cathedral mentioned the 1928 lifeboat disaster during today's Morning Prayer.) The loss of those men must have been devastating for all of Rye.
