An honour roll commemorates those who served in World War One.  The honour roll is unusual in that the names are listed in reverse alphabetical order. The roll was unveiled in the Barfold School in 1918.

The honour roll suffered water damage on 7th February 2009 (Black Saturday) as fire crews drowned the hall to save it from a bushfire.

BARFOLD. An interesting ceremony was performed at the State school on Friday March 15th, when Cr. Adams in the presence of the school children and about twenty ladies, unveiled the honor board, erected by the local people, to honor the old boys of the school and others who have fought in the Great War. There are 14 names on the board, and there are several others to be added. Cr. Adams, in a short address to the children, emphasized the great sacrifice these men had made for themselves and for all in giving their time and service, and in some cases their lives, that we may be allowed to live in freedom.
Kyneton Guardian (Vic), 28 March 1918.
