Hay Methodist Church Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The wooden roll of honour commemorates those connected with the Hay Methodist Church who served in World War One.

There was a crowded congregation at the Methodist Church when a roll of honour to members of the Hay Church, who have enlisted, was unveiled by the Rev. H. E. Bellhouse, formerly minister at Hay, but now chaplain at Cootamundra. The names inscribed on the roll are: — A. Adamson, J. Armstrong, F. and R. Butterworth, J. Eason, C. Fayle, A. Jacka, N. Myers, J. Matthews, D. and W. McMahon, R. Sandow, H. Styman, F. Tapscott, and J. Weymouth. The roll takes the form of a panel of polished beech, most artistically carved. It is inscribed: — For King and Country. — Hay Methodist Church Roll of Honour. Subsequent to the unveiling ceremony Mr. Bellhouse delivered an impressive sermon in keeping with the occasion, special hymns were sung by the choir, and Miss Sandow gave the solo, "He Wipes the Tear." Since the unveiling (on the 30th July), Sergt. Frank Butterworth has been reported wounded, and Private J. Weymouth injured.
Methodist (Sydney), 19 August 1916.
