Methodist Church Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The Methodist Church Honour Roll is a wooden honour roll which has carved in it, a rising sun badge, and angel with a wreath in its right hand, and a lion.   It lists 55 names of those who served in World War One.

Harvest thanksgiving services in connection with the local Methodist Church were held on Sunday, in ideal weather. A feature of the celebration was the unveiling in the church of the honor board to replace the old one in the hall.
Advocate (Burnie), 22nd March 1928.

Note : The church in Chapel Road is now a Baptist Church. It is unknown if the honour roll is still at this location.
