Woodville Volunteers Roll of Honour commemorates those who served in World War One. 

The Honour Roll is a timber framed poster of the printed record of service. The roll is surmounted by the Australian Coat of Arms and Australian National and Union Jack flags. The original Volunteers Roll was unveiled in on Anzac Day 1916 and contained 20 names. 

The unveiling of the Woodville district's rolls of honor took place in the School of Arts on Tuesday evening last, Anzac Day.  The marble slab set up to honor the memory of the brave boys who have fallen in service of their King and Country was unveiled by Mrs. Read, mother of the first local boy who fell, and the roll of volunteers was unveiled by Mrs. Croaker. The roll is of moleskin on which are the Australian Coat of Arms, hand-painted, and the names of volunteers who havo gone on active service, set in a polished oak frame. It is of handsome and artistic finish throughout.
