Photographs supplied by Mrs Josephine D Reeves OAM

The wooden honour roll commemorates those connected with the church who served in World War One.  It lists 10 names, and those with an asterisk next to them were killed in the war.

The honour roll was design by Miss Mitchell (possibly Agnes or Annie) who was the daughter of Reverend Robert Mitchell who preached in the church.

The celebration of the jubilee of the Golden Grove Presbyterian Church took place on June 25 and June 26. The services on Sunday were conducted by the Rev. J. Hall Angus, of St. Giles', Norwood.  On Monday a public meeting was largely attended. The interim Moderator (Rev. J. Hall Angus) presided.  The Moderator unveiled a roll of honor which had been carved by Miss Mitchell, of Goodwood. He gave a vivid account of his experiences with the Australian soldiers and said he was proud to be an Australian.
