Description / Background

This honour roll is an ornate marble tablet, with classical design features. The main tablet is made from white Italian marble. It is inscribed with the names of 105 soldiers who served in the First World War, which are highligted in gilt. Alongside 17 names is a small cross, also in gilt, indicating they made the supreme sacrifice. The Armidale Chronicle, 2 August 1919, provided this detailed description of the physical characteristics of the roll: 

The whole of the back plate ... is of Italian white marble. It is flanked by two columns of Mexican onyx, the bases, caps, and first member running across the pediment being of grey, or King Edward marble. The whole of the top and bottom portions under the bases is made of red New South Wales marble.

The roll was unveiled on 31 August 1919 by the Moderator of the State Assembly, Reverend Gordon. The "service of thanksgiving" was performed in front of a large crowd, which far exceeded the seating capacity of the church. The service was reported in detail in the Armidale Chronicle on 3 September 1919. 

Access to the roll is restricted to the opening hours of the church.
