United Free Church, Cullybackey

The following text is transcribed from the Ballymena Weekly Telegraph of 19th June 1915.



In our last issue we gave the roll of honour of the Cuningham Memorial Church, Cullybackey, setting forth the names of the young men belonging to that congregation who had responded to the call of King and country. This week we append the roll of honour of the United Free Church, Cullybackey, of which Rev. Jonathan Townsley is the esteemed minister, and although a small congregation, its young manhood has responded well to the call of duty.
