A framed paper honour roll commemorates those from the Presbyterian Church who served in World War One.  It lists 13 names.

Armistice Day was observed at Kempton by special service in all the churches. At the Presbyterian Church the honour board, which had been draped with the colours, had a laurel wreath placed on it in memory of the fallen. White lilies and a bowl of rosemary for remembrance were also placed in the church, and the solemn two minutes silence was observed at 11 a.m.
