In my experience there is at least one name in every village that doesn't appear on the CWGC - I've found several people with links to the Sampfords who are not on either War Memorial and likewise one name in each Sampford whose details I can't find on the CWGC website. Have you tried "Soldiers who died in the Great War"? That often has extra, complementary, information?
I have a bunch of Hempstead ancestors, mainly Harding and Buttle. If you contact me off list, Geoffrey, I'd be interested in seeing if we cross anywhere.
