Wickepin District Roll of Honour commemorates those who served in World War One.

The Wickepin District Roll of Honour was unveiled in May 1918 by Master Mervyn Cooke and Ivy Fisher. Mervyn's father Lieutenant Cooke was killed at the Gallipoli landing while Ivy's only brother was a prisoner of war in Germany. The roll contained the names of 238 of whom 20 per cent made the supreme sacrifice. The roll was incomplete at the time of the unveiling. The honour board of polished jarrah was crafted by Messrs, Bunning Brothers of Perth.
