I think the correct one would be the Norfolk Regiment Herbert Barrett

Am I right in thinking that he got the Victory Medal, the 1915 Star, and the British War Medal?

Any idea what the roll number means? and what does it say in the 'remarks' section?

Ah, well I have the wrong Herbert Barret then. :-p

Mine wasn't killed in action.

Oops. :-p

my guess would be that your Herbert looks like a corporal in the artillery (IMHO... although i wouldn't rule out the ASC either)
