An honour roll commemorates the men of the parish who served in World War One.

On Sunday afternoon, March 6, in the presence of a crowded church, the honour roll in St. Clement's Church, Yass, was unveiled by General Sir Granville Ryrie. It was dedicated to the Rev. H. T. Holliday, the father of the Rector. The roll contains 185 names, 28 of which are of men who gave their lives. The work was executed locally, and is of freestone and brass, the design of the Rector, the Rev. M. Holliday, Th.L.
