Photographs supplied by Graeme Saunders

The Honour Roll commemorates members of the Melbourne Cricket Club who died in service or were killed in action during during World War Two.

In World War Two, 2415 Members (out of about 8300) were in uniform. Of these, 141 lost their lives On Active Service; five others, all civilians, were also killed. 

In 1947, the Committee of the Melbourne Cricket Club approved a proposal to erect bronze plaques bearing the names of Members who had died in the two World Wars but, by 1949, the idea of naming the World War One dead had been abandoned in favour of an “appropriate inscription making reference to those Members who died in the 1914/18 War”.
