Photographs supplied by John Huth

The brass honour roll commemorates those connected with the church who served in World War One.

The names of those who died in service or were killed in action are placed in the middle of the roll.

The Honor Roll to be unveiled at All Saints' Church, Murrumbateman, on Sunday afternoon next, is a simple but valuable production in bronze and brass, designed by the Rector and executed by Messrs. Griffiths, Ltd., Sydney. The names, of which there are 63, are in three brass panels mounted upon a heavy bronze frame of artistic shape. The central pane contains the names of those who gave their lives, and above them are a cross and crown. Two texts also are engraved: ''Greater love hath no man than this," and " Grant unto them,O Lord, eternal rest." The service is at 3 p.m.,and a crowded congregation is expected. All returned men and friends have been invited by special advertisement, the ceremony of unveiling is to be performed by Sir Granville Ryrie. The necessary money for the memorial has been raised in a very short time by voluntary gifts:—a silent token of the esteem in which our soldiers are held. The Honor Roll is to be placed on the north wall of the church,close to the vestry.
