The St George`s Anglican Roll of Honour lists 47 names of those who served in World Wars One and Two. The names of those who lost their lives in World War Two were placed on the honour roll in 1946.  The honour roll has a peaked roof and a large Christian cross in the centre.

Organised by the Servicemen's Parents and Wives' Association branch, a dance was held in the hall. Proceeds and donations amounting to £15, are for placing names of servicemen who gave their lives in the Second World War, on the honour roll in St. George's Church.
