Grunthal Methodist Church Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The framed printed honour roll commemorates those from the church who served in World War One. The roll was originally unveiled in 1916 and contained three names. Additional names were added to the roll at a later date. 

Verdun was originally named Grunthal. 

The honor roll was unveiled in the Methodist Church, Grunthal, on Sunday evening, April 2, by Mrs. Wasley, in the presence of a crowded congregation. A service of a special character was conducted by the minister (the Rev. VV. T. Wiltshire). There are many young men in this district, but only three have enlisted. Others will probably go at the close of the fruit season. The three names on the honor roll are A. L. Wasley, Andrew Korber, and H. R. Radbone.
