J Hewitt, 8th KLR in Booth Line Roll of Honour

I'm trying to establish whether 'J Hewitt' who appears on the Booth Line Roll of Honour is the same as Sapper John Hewitt 86455 RE, formerly Private 2289 8/KLR, who was killed serving with 185th Tunnelling Company on 4 February 1916. He was one of the 16 men buried at Becourt who were gassed underground. 

 

According to http://www.merseysiderollofhonour.co.uk/memorials/liverpool/central/boothline.php

and http://www.merseysiderollofhonour.co.uk/getu.php?id=4077

the Booth Line roll states 'Private J Hewitt 8th Bn Liverpool Regt. Died from Gas Poisoning (Sculleryman)'

Can anyone with access to the Booth Line Roll of Honour confirm the exact wording?

Many thanks

Simon
