Roseville Methodist Church Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those connected with the Roseville Methodist church who served in World War One. The roll originally contained fifteen names with additional names being added at a later date. 

A large congregation was present at the Roseville Methodist Church on Sunday morning when a roll of honour of soldiers connected with the church was unveiled. Fifteen names were inscribed on a handsome tablet of Queensland maple, and included those of Lieut. Clarence Collier and Arthur Wheen, D.C. M. Both of these were local soldiers who fought at Pozieres, since which battle Lieut. Collier has been posted missing. The name of the late organist also appeared on the tablet. Major S. A. Roberts, a Roseville officer, who fought at Gallipoli, was present. The ceremony of unveiling the tablet was performed by Mrs. Chandler, of Roseville, a mother of one of the lads.
