Description / Background

The Honor Roll is a large memorial consisting of a slab of marble mounted on a classically designed timber frame. It was reburbished with an Anzac Centenary Grant. 

A Taylors Arm Reception Committee was formed by April 1921 and steps were taken to erect a Roll in the Taylors Arm Hall. The secretary was instructed to obtain prices from various firms as well as advice on the style of the monument. The Nambucca and Bellinger News on 6 May 1921 reported an order had been placed with Harvey and Son, Kempsey. At that stage 44 names had been received.

Ten months later, on 24 February 1922, they published a letter from Clem Sanders, a Nambucca Heads businessman explaining the reason for the delay in unveiling the Roll. Mr Sanders and Mr C. Johnson were charged with coordinating the work. It was now in the hands of Harvey and Son and expected to be completed in a week or two. The marble slab was to cost £50 and at that stage was to contain over seventy names. The first meeting to plan an unveiling had proved unsuccessful and he appealed for attendees to express interest, so the event could be arranged.
