Description

Early in November 1924 the vicar of Mullumbimby, Reverend D. J. Collins, appealed for names from the Army and Navy of those who served in the Great War. As there was no other honor roll in the Mullumimby area, names of all denominations would be accepted. Early in February 1925, Reverend Collins asked the Tweed Daily "to remind returned soldiers and their friends of the necessity of claiming a place on the honor roll of the Church of England in Mullumbimby now nearing completion." A satisfactory response had been received for the work.

The Tweed Daily on 13 March 1925 listed a number of gifts of furnishings including the copper honor roll from St John's Women's Guild. An issue on 25 March 1925 reported, "A very fine honor roll, of embossed copper, bearing the names of 101 men who "answered the call' in the "Great War" was placed in position in the Mullumbimby Memorial Church on Monday, ready for the opening today. The names are neatly arranged on brass tablets."
