An honour roll commemorates those from the church who served in World War One.  

On Monday evening, in the Presbyterian Church, an honor roll, presented to the church by Mr. R. J. Hay, was unveiled by Chaplain-Colonel Crookston. Seated on the platform were the Revs. Hunt, Topp and Findlay. Chaplain-Colonel Crookston gave an appropriate address and unveiled the roll of polished blackwood.

On either sides were hanging a large Union Jack and Australian flag, suspended from brass rods, and underneath the roll was placed a map of Australia in violets, in memory of the boys who are doing their duty, and on each side wreaths of white flowers tied with heliotrope and white ribbon, in memory of the four brave lads who have already paid the supreme sacrifice.
Bendigonian (Bendigo, Vic.), 29 August 1918.
