A wooden honour roll commemorates 47 service personnel who served in World War One.
 

There was a large congregation at St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Evandale, on the occasion of the unveiling of the church's roll of honour. It contains about 50 names, and has been hung on the wall in the centre of the church. The roll is of Tasmanian blackwood, artistically decorated, and the names are printed in gold letters. Mrs. J. V. Gibson (wife of the Warden) performed the unveiling ceremony. The service was conducted by the Rev.C.H.Shedden.
