Medal Order

My Father-in-law has asked me to mount his father's medals on a bar to be framed with a photograph - I have a bar but am unsure of the correct order, they are:
DSM (1940)
39-45 Star
Africa Star
Atlantic Star with France & Germany bar
War Medal
Long Service and Good Conduct Medal
He also has a Civil Defence Long Service Medal and a civilian BEM for Meritorious Service - I assume these would not be mounted with the others.
Can someone verify the order, please.
Regards

Probably wrong, but:

DSM
BEM
1939-45 Star
Atlantic Star
Africa Star
War Medal
Civil Defence Long Service Medal
LSGC

Are "Stars" date related? I've put the Atlantic Star first because the DSM was from 1940, so presumably before he was involved in North Africa.
