Great War Roll of Honour (1915)

West Church Presbyterian, Ballymena

The following text is transcribed from the Ballymena Weekly Telegraph of 5th May 1915.



In the last issue we gave the roll of honour of Wellington Street Presbyterian Church, 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 West Church, of which Rev. E. F. Simpson is the esteemed minister, and although it is not so lengthened as some of the other churches, it can be said that in proportion to their members the young manhood of this congregation have done nobly in the cause of the Empire. We append as far as possible in each instance the full name, home address, and regiment or ship in which they are serving:--
