Bangalow Presbyterian Church First World War Roll of Honour

Bangalow Presbyterian Church First World War Roll of Honour

The memorial is a timber roll of honour constructed from cedar, commemorating servicemen from the Bangalow Presbyterian Church who served in the First World War. The board has been carved with a Gothic arch shape and has turned columns at each side and a supporting platform at the bottom. The names and fate of 35 veterans are printed in gold in two vertical columns.

The memorial was unveiled at Bangalow Presbyterian Church on 16 July 1916. The service was conducted by Reverend R Miller and Mr W Gay, the oldest member of the church, was chosen to unveil the roll (Northern Star (Lismore), 21 July 1916).

The memorial originally contained the names and fate of 23 servicemen, however further names have been added over the years.
