Memorial tablet unveiled By the Reverend R Williams on the 21st May 1916 in memory of Frank Gorman who was killed at Gallipoli. 

There was a full congregation at the Irymple Methodist Church on Sunday morning, when a tablet to the memory of Private Frank Gorman (who was killed at Gallipoli twelve months ago) was unveiled by Rev. R. Williams. The preacher spoke feelingly of the sterling qualities of the young man and referred to his membership in the church, incidentally remarking that the unusually large congregation was a striking tribute to his memnory. The tablet, which is of brass and of ornate appearance, is inscribed as follows:-"Roll of Honour-In memory of Private Frank Gordon Gorman, who was killed in action at the Dardanelles on 2nd May, 1915. Inflexible of purpose, Steadfast in courage, Resolute in endurance in the face of this unparalleled war." 
Mildura Cultivator (Vic), 24 May 1916.
