The wooden honour roll commemorates those from the church who served in World War One. The roll was originally unveiled in 1916 and contained 29 names with additional names being added at a later date. 

On Thursday night a large congregation assembled in Holy Trinity Church to witness the unveiling of the honor roll to the parishioners who have volunteered for the front. The ceremony was performed by the Very Rev. Dean Talbot, of Sydney, who gave a most interesting address. In his conduct of the service the rector, the Rev. E. G. Robison was also assisted by the Rev. Canon Mort, M.A. The order of service included hymns, short litany of intercession, request for, and act of unveiling, the anthem, "Shepherd of Souls," well sung by the choir, prayers for the men at the front, for the British Empire, commemoration of the departed, prayer for peace. The National Anthem concluded a successful and impressive service. Among the congregation I noticed representatives of the Returned Soldiers' Association (Pte. N. Westland and others), Recruiting Association (Mr. Hickman), Red Cross' Society (Mrs. Fowler and Mrs. Rose), Rifle Club (Mr. Chopping and Mr. Green), the Progress Association (Mr. Rose), School of Arts (Mr. Medcalf), etc., etc. The roll carries 29 names, including Pte. H. E. Horton, killed in France, and Pte. Gordon Fookes, died in Egypt.
