There is a Roll of Honour in the chapel listing the Sunday School scholars from this chapel who served in the war. On the Imperial War Museum site there are two lists: of the eight who died and the thirty-two who returned (which includes some nurses). All the five men named above are wrongly recorded by the IWM as having returned.

The eight Sunday School scholars said to have died were:

R. Clewis        There is no record of him dying

A. Clugston   Died 21 February 1917

R. Elliot           There is insufficient evidence to identify this man

T. Gale              Died 11 May 1917

J. Mcard          Died 13 July 1918

R Quilliam      Died 3 October 1918

J. Sansbury   There is no record of him dying

F. Shimmin    Died 4 December 1916
