The names are not in alphabetical order. The Levels of the arrangement on the North Pool are marked out by raised letter headings on the Memorial. World Trade Center (North Pool); Flight 11; February 26, 1993.
Within those groupings are affiliations that correspond to companies or, for example, the passengers on a particular flight.
Every name inscribed can be located by the panel where the name is inscribed with N or S for north or south pool, respectively and panel number. Each pool has 76 panels and each panel is 10 feet in length. On average, there are between 20 and 22 names on a panel. On both pools, panel 1 appears in the northwest corner and the numbers continue counterclockwise through 76
