Photographs supplied by Arthur Garland

The wooden honour roll commemorates the members of the Methodist Church who served in World War One. It lists 55 names.  The roll has carved in it, a rising sun badge, and angel with a wreath in its right hand, and a lion.

Harvest thanksgiving services in connection with the local Methodist Church were held on Sunday, in ideal weather. A feature of the celebration was the unveiling in the church of the honor board to replace the old one in the hall.
Advocate (Burnie), 22nd March 1928.

Note: The “Tasmanian War Memorials Data Base”, compiled by Fred Thornett which is located at the State Library of Tasmania, contains a comprehensive listing of the names on this honour roll.
