Photographs supplied by Elizabeth Smith

The polished metal honour board with marble frame and ornate engravings surround the inscriptions which commemorate 304 men of the church within the diocese of Kalgoorlie who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

The roll was placed on the northern wall of the church edifice as a permanent memorial to the fallen soldiers.  

It is 6 and a half feet high and 2 feet wide.  The honour roll is mounted on a slab of Springhill Marble from New South Wales, and the designers and engravers were Messrs C. R. Wilson and Co. of Murray Street, Perth.

The unveiling and dedication of the Honour Roll took place on the 27th November 1921. The dedication ceremony was performed by Archbishop Riley and the unveiling of the roll by General Hobbs.
