 The Roll of Honour commemorates the men from the parish who served in World War One. 

The Governor (Lord Wakehurst) attended a special service at St Johns Church of England, Woolwich, yesterday afternoon and unveiled an Honour Roll. The honour roll made at Cockatoo Dock is of Australian timber. Lord Wakehurst said he had been informed that although the parish of Woolwich was the smallest in the diocese, the number of men who enlisted was greater in propoition to its size than that from any other parish. The Governor inspected a guard of honour of returned soldiers of the district under Mr F. D. Meares, president of the Hunters Hill branch of the Returned Soldiers' League.
