Flemington-Kensington Presbyterian Church

This is the former Flemington Presbyterian Church in Norwood St, Newmarket, which was burnt to the ground in 1970. The site is currently occupied by St Stephen's Presbyterian Church, which uses the old Sunday School building, just visible in the photo at the back of the church.

The photo was taken in 1943 by Alan Elliott, and located in Trove by the Organ Historical Trust of Australia.  

 I was hoping to get a photograph of the WW1 Honour Roll, but missed it by 43 years. If anyone just happens to have a photo (or transcript) of the Roll of Honour, which was a very large one, I understand, I would love to hear from you. Also if you have relatives who served who were associated with the church before the war. So far I know that Gus Stelling and Roy Easton were members of that congregation.
